The purpose of God’s judgment is correction, not revenge

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word:

The word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD. Jonah 1: 1-3.

Thought:

 The purpose of God’s judgment is correction, not revenge. He is always willing to show compassion to anyone willing to obey Him. If God asks us to share with our neighbors / colleagues Christ’s love and the free gift of salvation through faith in Lord Jesus what will our response be? When we face difficulties on account of the gospel God will provide us the strength and encouragement we need.

Let us boldly share the love of Christ to those who are in need of Christ’s love.

The Fear of the Lord

Word:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer. Pro 9: 10-12.

Thought:

The foundation of knowledge is to fear the LORD- to honour and respect God, to live in awe of His power and obey His word. The word of God is living, life changing and dynamic as it works in us. It is the controlling principle of our understanding of life in this world as well as our attitudes and our actions.

The Supremacy of the Son of God

 Word:

The Supremacy of the Son of God

 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  Col 1: 15-17

Thought:

God says that wisdom is primary and fundamental. It is the foundation on which all life is built. In Paul’s spiritual journey he mentioned about wisdom to describe Christ’s presence at the creation of the world.

God’s plan

Word:

Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route. Mat 2: 7-12

Thought: Herod was king by a human appointment; Jesus was king by a divine appointment. No one can prevent God’s plan from being carried out.
