Prayer- Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
1What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? 2Much in every way! First of all, they have been entrusted with the very words of God.
3What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? 4Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge."[a]
5But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) 6Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world? 7Someone might argue, "If my falsehood enhances God's truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?" 8Why not say—as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say—"Let us do evil that good may result"? Their condemnation is deserved.
We will all stand in judgement before God. This is a true statement. We are all sinners, and we have all sinned against God, in some form or fashion. We can be a sinner and still be a faithful Christian, (good news,) but we are still sinners.
What excuses will you make on that day of judgement? "My sins were not that bad", or "Isn’t Gods job to forgive- therefore I’m just helping him do His job?" We all take God’s grace for granted, because it is freely given. But with God’s grace comes judgement. What will you say to God?
Prayer- Dear Lord, help me to live a life that pleases you and will give me satisfaction when I go through the life review. Prepare for me my place in Heaven that Your grace has given me. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
