The Supreme Judge

May 28, 2009

Currently in the news is President Obama’s appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.  It is an important position and it would be good to pray for wisdom for our leadership as the confirmation process proceeds. 

There is a higher court.  One day we will all stand before the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.  One day, we will face The Supreme Judge.  There has been an appeal for leniency, and it has been granted in Jesus Christ.  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16   This verse is known world wide. 

John 3:18&19 are not as popular.  “He who believes in Him is not condemned: but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

Those who reject Christ will face the Supreme Judge.

There will be no further appeals.
