Daily Fountain 2017 - The Rationale Behind God's Judgment

Saturday February 11

Bible Reading:     Romans 2: 1 - 16

Topic:         The Rationale Behind God's Judgment

Every sound judgment delivered by a Judge should contain what is called in latin - the ratio decendi - (the reason for the decision)

In 2016, in the Rivers State bitter Governorship battle between Dakuki Peterside and Ezebunwo Wike, the Supreme Court gave a ground-breaking judgment in favour of Wike after he had lost at both the Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.

However the Supreme Court postponed giving the reason for that judgment for another date.

However, God is different. Even before the final judgment, He gave His reasons for His judgment.

Our passage today gives us four reasons why His judgment against all unrighteousness is just

1.      His revelation in His Word (v. 2)
2.      Unwillingness of man to repent (vs. 3 - 6)
3.      He treats everyone equally (vs. 7 - 11)
4.      Everybody has equal responsibility according to the light received.

So if you fall into His Hands in judgment, be sure that He is right in judging you

God the Righteous Judge, give me the grace to do Your Will so that I don't fall into Your condemnation, Amen

Memory verse:   Romans 2: 1
"Therefore thou art inexcusable O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things."
