God is just; God is a just judge. He punishes wickedness and puts an end to it. He renders unto humankind according to their works: the wicked He destroys, and the righteous He spares.
God judged the world with a flood (Genesis 6:17), He judged cities with fire and brimstone (Genesis 19:24), He drove out wicked nations before His people (Deuteronomy 18:12), He judged His own people (2 Kings 21:12), and He will judge every soul who ever lived (Daniel 12:2-3, Isaiah 45:23).
Questions for Reflection
Some people challenge the doctrine that God is just. What challenges do they present, and how would you respond to their challenges?
In the past, God judged the world, Sodom, the Canaanites, and Israel. Do you think God continues to judge peoples and nations?
There will come a time when God will judge every human soul who has ever lived and who will ever live. This includes you. How can you prepare for that time of judgement?
Lord God, I recognize that you are the judge of all the Earth, and I recognize that your judgement is just and severe. You seek to destroy all wickedness, and you will destroy all those who oppose you, the righteous God.
I tremble before you, and I tremble not only for myself but for my loved ones, my nation, and all humankind: for we are all sinners, we all fall short of your glorious righteousness.
Thank-you, Lord, for warning us all. Thank-you for giving us hope of salvation through Jesus Christ, whom I humbly receive in my heart. Amen.
