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.

 

Stand firm in Christ
