“7 But God is the Judge:
He puts down one,
And exalts another. ”
God knows our hearts, and there’s no getting away from His judgment.
The good news is, God is fair in the way He judges us. God is just.
By God is just, I mean that He is perfectly righteous in the way He treats His creatures.
God does not show partiality, and He condemns the mistreatment of others.
He also executes His vengeance against oppressors, against evil.
Our heavenly Father is just in rewarding those who serve and honor Him, and help those around us.
“10 For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.”
God is also equally just in punishing those who trespass against Him or those He loves.
“25 But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.”
In His punishment, God’s justice and righteousness work hand in hand as the foundation of His judgment.
Punishment vs Wrath
God’s discipline is not eternal, but His wrath is never ending.
Sinners who repent from their trespasses may be punished, while those who choose evil face God’s wrath, forever.
Like a loving father who must discipline his disobedient children, so must God to train up His children.
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God, and as such, we should all humble ourselves and be ready to do the time, if we’ve done the crime.
Continue to honor God with your life knowing that He will never judge you unfairly…
