HOLY, JUST, AND GOOD

 

Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. __Romans 7:12__

In that great day all will see that their course of action decided their destiny. They will be rewarded or punished according as they have obeyed or violated the law of God. In that great day the character of each individual will be plainly and distinctly revealed. God will look into all the feelings and motives. No one then occupy middle ground. Men and women are either saints or sinners, either entitled to a glorious life of eternity, or doomed to eternal death.

What a scene that will be! … The aggravated guilt of the world will be laid bare, and the voice of the eternal Judge will be heard saying, “Depart from Me; I never knew you.” The judgment will be conducted in accordance with the rules given in order that man might have eternal life. The law of God, which men are now called upon to obey and make their rule of life, but which many refuse to accept, is the law by which they will be judged. We are judged by our works. Obedience or dis¬obedience means everything to us.

The last great day will witness the triumph of the law of Jehovah. As the im-penitent look upon the cross of Calvary, the scales fall from their eyes, and they see that which before they would not see. The law, God’s standard of righteous¬ness, is exalted even as His throne is exalted. God Himself gives reverence to His law. (Letter 131, October 14, 1900)

Reflection:

Today, more than ever before, we are doing our best as a nation to do away with God’s law. At the very time we need it most, we turn our backs on it. Romans 7:1-2 describes God’s law as holy, just, and good. Why would anyone want to do away to “holy, just, and good”?Today, more than ever before, we are doing our best as a nation to do away with God’s law.
