Our God will surely judge

Romans 5:2-11 -

Of late Pune has become a play ground for Satan and he has been having a free hand in that city. Although there are many believers in that city yet Satan has not spared even the churches, in fact his main operation centers are so called Christian churches.

One church there has a mission of bringing all gods to the same table under one understanding like man did when they build the tower of Babel. There is another Church called Children of God which promotes free sex while holding a Bible in the hand. They also have the courage to say this is written in the Word of God. And people like Eve who was not rooted in the Word fall for this.

There is another group of so called Christians and are connected with today's message; these people always talk of 'God is love and an ever forgiving God'. Their concept of love is different than what the Bible says. They say God forgives everything so even today after we accept Jesus Christ as our savior we can continue sinning or doing anything or everything we desire and we will be forgiven (or are already forgiven). Under this understanding they promote all kinds of relationships, a life of all fleshy desires, everything one can imagine under the sun and all this is done with a straight face with head held high believing they are in the Lord and are Christians.

When we talk about them we detest them for calling themselves Christians but in today's message the Lord is asking us about our understanding. How many of us fear the Lord when we continue our sinful way of life. We all trust in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins but we should realize we cannot keep continuing for there will surely be a day when there will be a full stop to the taking granted of the grace of Jesus Christ.

When we are far from the Lord, whatever our sins were, however much they were, they are all forgiven the day we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and are baptized in Him. But the day we receive the Holy Spirit and the power to overcome sin then we are expected to stop our sinful way of life. If we still continue our sinful way then in simple terms we are rejecting the power to overcome sin, which is the Holy Spirit and we know grieving the Holy Spirit is something which does not get forgiven.

Today the Lord is asking us to remember even though He has given us abundant grace still we need to remember at the end we all will be judged. So till the grace of God is over us let us change and continue our fight against our sinful Adam nature and put on the nature of Jesus Christ.

[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord Jesus, when there was no hope for man against the wrath of God when man sinned, it was You who became our sacrifice and taking the wrath on yourself You made available abundant grace for us. Help us to always remember that this grace was paid for by You at a high price and that we cannot take it for granted. Lord, help us remain in your grace for we do not want to experience the wrath which awaits those who reject your grace and worst which is in store for those who abuse your grace. You shed your Blood to protect us from the wrath of God and we thank You for your Blood sacrifice...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[ Reference Scriptures ]
Romans 5:2-11
5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;
6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:
7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

Hebrews 10:26 -31
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
