Follow the Righteous Judge

19 You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. ~ Deuteronomy 16:19

Is God a righteous judge? How can we be sure? Let’s quickly take a moment to define a righteous judge. A righteous judge keeps His laws. And according to the law, not the law of Moses, but the law of a life for a life, the command to Noah, all who destroy the body will be liable to death.

And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.

Genesis 9:5

So, if the penalty of sin is death, according to Romans 6:23, and every person has willingly sinned according to Romans 3:23, then every person has willingly spiritually killed themselves. I know that got a little deep, but basically, because we kill ourselves through sin, we deserve death, specifically the second death, which is the Lake of Fire. Now, because Jesus took our punishment on the cross, then God can now show us mercy, which according to James, triumphs over judgment.

Because Jesus took our punishment upon Himself and cleansed us from all unrighteousness, then we are no longer liable to judgment. God didn’t show partiality. He didn’t just overlook sin. He sacrificed Himself and took our punishment upon Himself because He loves us. But don’t be fooled by the lies of this world; God will not overlook sin because He loves us. If He did, He would break His own law. We must live our lives as Christ lived His. We can’t continue in our sins but put off our old man and become a new creation in Christ Jesus that we might have Everlasting Life.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Follow The Righteous Judge.
