Topic: Have You Counted The Cost? [DCLM Daily Manna 9 May 2019
Text: Job 24:14-25 (KJV)
Key Verse: “The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree”(Job 24:20)
It is obvious to the spiritually discerning minds that contemporary societal values and norms have become so perverted and corrupted that morality to many has become relative. No wonder, the concept of right or wrong is often based on what is generally accepted. Hence, many have dug up excuses to justify their misdeeds as well as pride themselves in their waywardness. Some even go on to ask why God has not been swift to judge, if He actually knows that they are evil. Some others claim that God’s love and mercy will not allow Him to judge His own creatures by casting them to hell. These positions clearly expose their ignorance of the Scriptures that “the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness…” (Romans 1:18).
The text simply reveals some of the acts of man’s inhumanity to man and acts of sin against God. These include sinful practices such as prostitution, murder, adultery, burglary robbery etc. Sin has no other description than being the transgression of the laws of God and it will certainly be judged.
Have you been lost in the realm of contemporary philosophy where wrong is right? Are you justifying your sins because majority are involved? Are you under the illusion that God will not judge sin because many are involved? Are you deceived by the fact that things are going smooth with you despite your acts of rebellion against God? Wait! What if God should ask you now to account for your ungodly deeds? What if God should pass His verdict on your actions now? Have you counted the cost if your soul should be lost? Repent TODAY, repent NOW!
Thought For The Day: God’s wheel of justice may move slowly, yet it is steady.
