GOD IS JUST

SCRIPTURES: 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and JUST to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.     Romans 3:26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be JUST, and the JUSTIFIER of him which believeth in Jesus.

THOUGHT: To say that God is JUST is to say that He always is and always acts in a way that is morally upright and good, or Righteous. God is a “Person” of supreme integrity and all of His character traits come into play in Justice or Judgment, such as His Goodness, Wisdom, Knowledge, Truth, Righteousness, Faithfulness, etc. For example, He is JUST and He is also Merciful. So He made a way to pardon your sin by the blood of His own Son, while keeping His JUST character in tact. God is not unrighteous (see Hebrews 6:10). You can have confidence that God is a JUST judge and that He is also compassionate and will do what is right as it relates to your life. Having this confidence means that you can trust the Salvation that God, the JUST Judge has provided by His Son, Jesus Christ. God also requires that as a recipient of His compassion that you will also mix JUSTICE with Mercy and Compassion in your relationships with others. 

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father and MY JUST GOD: Thank You for Your mercy and compassion in giving me salvation in Your Son Jesus Christ. I am so grateful and I will also do the same in my relationships with others. Help me to be more and more like You every day and in every way. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES: Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.  Luke 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men , in that he hath raised him from the dead.

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
