Did You Know That Forgiveness And Justice Work Together?

God forgives us and He also administers justice.

God has promised us forgiveness if we confess our sins to Him according to 1 John 1:9. He loves us unconditionally and wants the best for us. He showed this AGAPE love when He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. God wanted a sacrifice that would justify the penalty for sin. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

     Even though God forgives us, we must recognize that He is also a God of justice. Justice according to the Random House College Dictionary is the administering of deserved punishment or reward. Because God is just, He will administer punishment or reward to anyone when necessary. He also has the absolute authority to administer this justice how He deems necessary. God knows what degree of punishment and reward each of us need. We can count on God to punish us when we sin and go astray. He will also reward or recompense us when we suffer a wrong done to us. Therefore, forgiveness and justice go hand in hand.

Can You Pass The DELAY TEST?

Do You Trust God? Do You Need Patience?

During the times we are delayed through trials and tribulations, our own disobedience, or a trap from Satan, we should humble ourselves. According to 1 Peter 5:6-7, we are to humble ourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time. Casting all our cares upon him; for he careth for us. Whatever the purpose God has for the trial, we should ask Him to help and instruct us through it. We should also seek an understanding from God for the trial according to Proverbs 3:5-6. We must trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding. In all our ways we should acknowledge Him and He shall direct our paths. When we seek God’s understanding for the trial we will learn the lesson in it.

     Many times people become frustrated when they are delayed. They get angry when they can’t make progress in their lives. They feel God’s principles are too hard so they create their own method to achieve their goals. Many create their own way even if it is wrong, illegal, and ungodly. They also create methods without boundaries and constraints. Anything goes when the absolute standard has been forsaken. Instead of seeking God for help to obey His principles they become upset and frustrated with God. God’s principles require discipline and obedience. Many times people are unwilling to give what it takes to be disciplined or obedient. The more we become disciplined in a specific area of our lives the easier it will become to be obedient in that same area.
