Verdict Is In
Daily Reading – Ezekiel 17-20 / James 2
Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:
Society has found it easy to blame someone else for their situations. Courtrooms are filled with people wanting someone else to be at fault for their errors in life. For example: A lady spilled hot coffee on herself and received a rather bad burn. She sued the restaurant for not telling her the coffee was hot. How about the bank robber who was shot after pointing a gun at a deputy, and then sued the city for $6.3 million dollars for his medical bills. In Florida it’s reported, a woman sued FedEx, because they left a package on her doorstep, and she tripped over the package and fell. It’s clear that people want someone else to be responsible for their own errors of judgment.
Well, according to scripture, there is one courtroom where the verdict is already in on who is responsible for where a person will spend eternity. When we stand before the Lord someday, we will not be able to blame our mom for our sins. We will not have our fathers to blame for our choices in life. We can’t blame society for treating us wrong, or the neighborhood we grew up in for the decisions we have made. It will not be about our gender, our race, our economic standard, our political affiliation, or the church we go to. Every person will stand alone before God and have to give an answer to why they chose to accept, or reject the blood of Jesus Christ for their own sins. Rejecting His loving substitution is the greatest of all sin. The verdict is in.
GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:
Rom. 1:20 says; “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
What will be the verdict on your life?
