Justice

"For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them on that day when,according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus." -Romans 2:14-16

Over this past week we have seen that each person has a sense of justice within themselves.  We desire for justice to be done.  These are a truly visible sign of the fingerprints of the Potter on the clay of our hearts. Our intrinsic sense of what it right and wrong is smeared deep within our image, which is marred version of His own.  We have a conscience, which means literally "with knowledge" of justice, or right and wrong and points to the Greater reality of the Knowledge Giver, the One who is Perfection, the One who is Moral Law Giver.  He has set this Law in our heart and has shown that we are accountable to Him and one day He will judge us by the law through Jesus Christ.

The question then, for us, will we bow to Him now, or will we bow to Him later?

Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. - Philippians 2:9-11

"What a Savior!"

The idea that Christ's work on the Cross merely made salvation "possible" is to be absolutely rejected.  That would make us our Savior, not God.  Not an ounce of the blood of Jesus was in vain. His atonement is actual and it is total.  "Full Atonement Can it Be?  Hallelujah!  What a Savior!"

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” - Matthew 1:21

Abortion Supporters Chant 'Hail Satan!', Denounced by Actual Satanists

via The Gospel Coalition

Last week at the Texas Capitol, pro-abortion protesters shouted, "Hail Satan!" in an attempt to drown out pro-lifers' rendition of "Amazing Grace." But on Twitter the United Kingdom's Church of Satan said it was "Unfortunate to see Satan's name used in such a diabolical manner." --------Rest of the Story Here
