GET RIGHT WITH GOD
We seem to be too concerned with what others will think when we do certain things. We wonder how they will react or what they will do. However, our concern should not be about what others think. Our concern should be about what God wants and obeying Him. We will all be judged from God one day. Whatever choices we make will not be for others to judge but for God to judge. Why not get right with God now so we won’t have to face His judgment about what we have done wrong??
2 Thessalonians 1:7b-8 “He will come with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don’t know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, there are so many who are not living right for You. There are those who condemn and judge others. There are those who worship the things of the world rather than You. There are those who are selfish and don’t show love to others. There are so many wrongs in the world. Help us all to remember that we should be living for You. We should be doing Your will. We should be focusing on what good we can do rather than what others think knowing You will be our final Judge. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we refuse to do as God commands us to do, we are deciding to step out on our own with no protection.
When we worry too much about what others think, we aren’t focusing on doing what God tells us to do.
Judgment from others shouldn’t be our concern. What they think is just their opinion. Judgment from God is based on His word and will determine our eternal outcome.
There is nothing to worry about when we decide to focus on God and do His will every day.
God’s plan is to judge all people one day. All will be judged according to their actions.
Ezekiel 18:30 “Therefore, I will judge each of you, O people of Israel, according to your actions, says the Sovereign Lord. Repent, and turn from your sins. Don’t let them destroy you!” (NLT)
