A Word of Caution and Comfort - November 19, 2021

“He will judge everyone according to what they have done” (Romans 2:6 NLT).

For some of you this is a word of caution. Don’t think for a moment that God turns a blind eye to acts of rebellion and deeds of malice. Dismiss God in this life, and he will dismiss you in the next.

For others this can be a word of comfort. Do evildoers get a free pass? The Bible’s answer is a resounding no! God “has set a day when he will judge the world” (Acts 17:31).

God’s righteous indignation is on high boil, and his call to you and me is straightforward: Get involved. “Whoever shuts their ears to the cry of the poor will also cry out and not be answered” (Proverbs 21:13). When we cry out, “God, do something!” he says, “I did – I created you.”
