THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE


 

Today’s Readings:

ROMANS 2: 12-16

“For not the hearers of the law are justified before God, but the doers of law will be justified.”

( Romans 2:13)

 



The judiciary is referred to as the ‘last hope of the common man’ because it is responsible for upholding the rule of law and ensuring that justice is served. But in most cases, the judiciary has been the calamity of the common man because judgment have been perverted. The rich or the most influential are being favored. But there is a judge who will never be biased or take sides and that is our God.


God will not judge the Gentiles who did not have the Old Testament law as the standard for living. Those who perish without the Old Testament law will do so not because they violated Old Testament law, but because they violated the law of the conscience. Before the Law of Moses came, God had implanted into every man the conscience. Conscience gives you the ability to evaluate your own thoughts and desires, to discern what is right and wrong and to distinguish between what is good and what is best. No one can claim any impunity before God. There’s a law in every man’s heart which serves as a guide to what is good or bad. Cain and Abel operated under that God’s implanted law (Conscience). It is not enough to simply have a knowledge of the law. The most important thing is ones response to the law. The scripture says in James 1: 22 but be doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving yourselves.


If those who were not under law obey the law of conscience definitely, they are not different from those who obeyed the Law of Moses during the period the law was giving. And if those under the Law of Moses obeyed the Law of Moses invariably, they have obeyed the gospel using comparative analysis. But the ultimate issue is that each will be judged based on what law exist during their lifetime. For those in this dispensation, they will be judged by the gospel. Are you obeying the gospel? The law of this dispensation can be seen as the law of the Spirit. It is not correct to say that we not under law but grace. We were delivered from the Law of Moses, but we are under the law of Christ and we shall be judged by that. God is never partial to judge anyone unrighteous.

JAMES ALADE
