The wrath of God is revealed against all ungodliness and unrighteousness. There are atheists, God-deniers and God-haters who suppress the truth. They are not in right standing with God. They are on a spiral down. It is a very dark spiral. They don’t see where they are going. They spiral out of control.
I can’t be a hypocrite though. I have missed God’s goal for my life as well. I have to take the plank out of my eye so I can see clearly. While the godless may be in a downward spiral, I’m not on high ground here. I can’t point any fingers at others. When I criticize someone, I condemn myself.
It does take one to know one!
Judgmental criticism of others is a well-known way of escaping detection of my own crimes and misdemeanors. But God isn’t so easily diverted.
God sees right through all such smoke screens and holds me to what I’ve done.
- Thanks be to Jesus the King of God’s country for setting me free.
- Thanks be to Jesus for blood He shed on the cross to pay my penalty for me.
- Thanks be to Jesus for defeating death and His stunning resurrection to an incorruptible body.
- Thanks be to Jesus for ascending to heaven where He now reigns as King, sitting at the right hand of the Almighty God!
