Now or Later

It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘Every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’”  So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.1

So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man.2

I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit—3

I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.  My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.  Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes.  He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts.  At that time each will receive his praise from God.4

God’s Way

While reading Shana Schutte’s blog this really jumped out at me.  I’m looking forward to where this truth will take me!  Check out Shana’s blog by clicking her name below.  I pray that it blesses you.

“Through surrender, I was reminded that where God rules, peace reigns. I honestly believe that our trials are often more difficult than they need to be because we won’t give in to God’s way.” Shana Schutte

“The words of Christ ought to have a place in us, the innermost and uppermost place, — a dwelling place, as a man at home, not as a stranger or sojourner, — a working place”; the words of Christ “must have room to operate, to work sin out of us, and to work grace in us”; the word made flesh “must have a ruling place”, His place “must be upon the throne”, Jesus “must dwell in us richly.”  (Mathew Henry)
