24 – The Judgment

Have you ever had a court make a ruling or issue a judgment in your favor?
Against you? Does the memory of the process make you squirm? Courts and
judgments make us uncomfortable. You may have heard someone say, “it’s not
mine to judge.” That raises the question – whose is it to judge? As
Christians we believe that God has the authority to judge. As a “just”
judge He judges with truth and integrity. What this means is that all sin
and wrongdoing must be punished – including all our sins and failures. The
good news is that God isn’t waiting to carry out that Judgment against us.
No, He has already carried it out. He executed justice when Jesus was
judged guilty and crucified!
