They are watching you
The moment that you start following Jesus Christ seriously the eyes of the whole world will be on you, especially the eyes of the false Christians, the hypocrites. They will want you to slip up, to fall, and if you slip and fall they will broadcast it to the whole world.
The religious people of the time were the worse critics of Jesus Christ. The pharisees called Him a glutton and a wine bibber because He ate with the sinners. even the disciples of Jesus Christ were worried about each other.
We read in John 21: 20 “Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His bosom at the supper and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” 21So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” 22Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!”
People are concerned about other people, what those people are doing, whether they fail or slip up. What matters is whether I am following Jesus, whether I am pleasing to Him, because I will stand before Jesus in the end. Whether my brother slips up and falls is not my business. Jesus will pick Him up if he is serious about following Jesus Christ. But that makes no difference to my walk with Jesus. However, if I keep on looking around at other people I take my eyes off Jesus and I don't follow Him, therefor I have to keep my eyes on Jesus or else I will stumble.
Do not be surprised if the false Christians are watching you like a hawk and waiting for you to fail or slip up. Keep your eyes on Jesus and follow Him and Jesus will keep you going. If we keep our eyes on the Lord He will keep our feet out of the traps. Jesus Christ is faithful. If we stay focused on Him and we keep following Him, nothing and nobody can pluck us out of His hand. He will guide us into His perfect will and He will approve us in the end.
Stay focused on Jesus and don't be shaken!
may Jesus bless you.
