Many seek the ruler's favour; but every man's judgment cometh from the LORD.
Today's Morsel: One of the things about us as humans is that we want the favor and approval of others more than the favor and approval of God. We even see this in Jesus' day. Scriptures say that many would not confess Jesus for fear of being put out of the synagogue (John 12:42). And today, people will do everything to please man instead of Jesus. They will wear what the world says to wear, not considering if it's pleasing to God. They will work long hours and overtime, not considering what God wants. They will bend over backwards for their secular boss and reject their pastor, never realizing that only what they do for Jesus will last. Jesus said that in the last day the word would judge us (John 12:48). So the question is, if you stood before Jesus right now, what would your judgment be?
Sing: Thank You, Lord, for saving my soul. Thank You, Lord, for making me whole. Thank You, Lord, for giving to me, Thy great salvation, so rich and free.
Thought For Today: We must all stand someday before God!
