In response to Charles Spurgeon, “If within the courts of justice, a thief, when referred to as up, ought to argue, ‘Properly, I’m not so nice a thief as some; there are to be discovered some who’ve been thieves longer than I and if there be one conviction within the e-book towards me, there are some which have a dozen convictions towards them.’
No Justice of the Peace would acquit a person on such an excuse as that, as a result of it will be tantamount to his admission of a level of guilt, although he may attempt to excuse himself as a result of he had not reached the next diploma”. It’s so with each sinner. All have sinned. One other man’s sins can’t excuse you; you have to stand by yourself ft on the day of judgment.
The phrase of the Lord got here to Ezekiel within the textual content to cease an faulty perception paraded with a well-liked proverb. The saying was that when the fathers sinned, the punishment can be transferable to their youngsters. God declared that each one souls belong to Him – the soul of the daddy, in addition to the soul of the son. Any soul that sins and doesn’t repent will certainly die. Everyone seems to be liable for his or her sins.
Regardless of the variety of human targets, aspirations and technique of survival, one factor stays universally important: the well-being of the soul. That is one space of life that you’ll by no means be excused for neglecting. Whereas every little thing else that issues to us on this life will sometime stop to be, our immortal souls will proceed to reside on, whether or not in everlasting bliss or everlasting grief.
That you simply attend church recurrently, do charitable works in the neighborhood and provides alms to the poor doesn’t robotically translate into getting the approval of God in heaven. Repentance and religion in Christ are vital as a result of nobody can bear your sins for you: everybody will stand in judgment sooner or later.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: All souls will face God individually at judgment.
