You Don’t Have the Right

16 But to the wicked person, God says: “What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips?” ~ Psalms 50:16

Listen to what God said to the wicked person, “What right do you have to recite My laws or to take up My covenant on your lips?” That is scary stuff. If a wicked person doesn’t have the right in this life to even recite God’s laws or to take up His covenant on their lips, how much more will they not have access to His promises after they die?

If you continue to reject God and His word, then God will reject you. It’s not that He doesn’t love you because He does. It’s not that He hasn’t given you the opportunity because He has. But today is the day of salvation. Tomorrow is not promised to any man.

But someone will say, “God has taken away our right to cite His laws or take up His covenant on our lips. Therefore, He has taken away our opportunity.”

No, not at all. What He is saying is you don’t have the right while you are still in your sins. If you had all of the privileges of salvation and all the rights of sonship without actually being redeemed, it would make you even more lost. That is the reason why God had to drive Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden after they sinned because He didn’t want them to stretch out their hand and eat from the Tree of Life. Why? Because they would be eternally lost in their sins. It’s all about mercy. It’s not God’s will that any perish. He wants everyone to accept His free gift of life that Jesus purchased when He was crucified on the cross at Golgotha.

Therefore, cleanse the inside, and the outside will follow. Be obedient in the commands of God, and you can partake of His holiness and participate in His promises. For then His eternal love will surround you, and the blood of Jesus will cleanse you.

Father, I have sinned. I know that I am not a perfect person. I’ve tried to mix the unclean with the clean. I repent of my sins and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ. Wash me in the precious blood of Jesus, that I might be clean. Thank You, LORD Jesus, for dying for me and redeeming me from darkness. Keep me in Your everlasting love and teach me to differentiate between light and darkness, good and evil, right and wrong. Guide me in everything I do. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
