Today, Thursday January 7 - Romans 2:5-11 – A popular quote that is often heard is: “Your decisions today will determine your destinations tomorrow!” As I have studied my Bible over the years, I’ve noticed that this is a major theme of the Bible! Paul said in Galatians 6:7-9 “Be not deceived, God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sows that will he also reap. If you sow to the flesh, you will of the flesh reap corruption. But if you sow to the Spirit, you will of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Remember Jesus said, “The way you judge others is the way you will be judged.” And also remember the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them to do to you.”
In these verses that we are looking at in Romans 2, we find the same message. The only way a nation, a society or even an individual can enjoy a life of peace, security and order, is to acknowledge the God who created them, and then to obey Him and live by His principles that are found in His revelation, the Bible. It’s amazing to me, how the pagan, heathen, unbelieving and atheistic world wants the benefits of what a “Christian” culture and belief system produces, but they do not want the God Who brings it. And my friend, you really can’t have one without the Other! “For God is not a God of confusion but of order and peace.” (1 Corinthians 13:33) I’m afraid that it is very obvious that today America is now beginning to reap the confusing whirlwind of a humanistic belief system that really denies God and His revelation!
God is Good and is always good! And when you know and love Him, and live in obedience to Him and His ways, you will truly enjoy the fullness of His Life and Glory! And this is always through a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ and not a religion! God bless!
