July 2 – God’s Laws Are Not Bendable

Daily Bible Life

The Israelites had enjoyed practicing idolatry, which made them suffer terrible punishments from God; however, the Creator promised to deliver them of their sins. God gave them a changed mind and removed evil practices from their land. Evil dwellers of the land would be ashamed when God’s scepter of righteousness is lifted up. God promised the nation of Israel, “It shall be in that day,” says the Lord of hosts, “that I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to depart from the land. It shall come to pass that if anyone still prophesies, then his father and mother who begot him will say to him, ‘You shall not live, because you have spoken lies in the name of the Lord.’ And his father and mother who begot him shall thrust him through when he prophesies” (Zechariah: 13:2-3).

 

Lesson:

God has a standard of righteousness that cannot be broken; he will not change his mind, but humans are to change their mind to comply with his standard. God’s principles remain immovable and unchangeable; he will not compromise those principles based on our “evolving” beliefs and practices. As humans, we may rationalize and come up with excuses, but Jehovah will remain immovable, and he will judge the world based on his set rules. Therefore, people of our generation should sit tight and serve God according to his standard. We should clearly define God’s expectations, according to biblical standards and comply with them. We should desist from trivializing issues that are important to God.

The Creator expects us to change from our sinful ways, and turn to him with purity. We must revere God and serve him with dignity so that he can bless us. If we make God happy with our holy living, he will make us happy with his benefits: Rain will fall in its time, and the sun will shine according to schedule. However, if we disobey God and take him for granted, his imminent judgments will loom over us. People who walk against God’s laws will have themselves to blame in hell – unless they exercise repentance before it is too late.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I understand that you are the God of grace and mercy, but you are also the God of fire and brimstone. You will not tolerate evil, but you will judge evildoers; those who refuse to repent from their sinful ways will suffer the consequences of their actions. Therefore, I submit myself to you today. I come to say, “I will obey your instructions and serve you well.” I am sorry for my sins and I repent from them all. As from today, my total life is dedicated to you, and I will serve you faithfully throughout my life! Please write my name in the book of life and keep me heavenly worthy. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
