But Don't Forget

This is a brief exhortation I want to share with all of you. We the redeemed who have tasted the sweet loving-kindness of our Lord Jesus Christ know that our Lord is “merciful and gracious, slow to anger and loving kindness and truth and forgiving iniquity and transgression…” (Numbers 14:18). But we should not also not forget that “our indeed our God is a consuming fire” (Hebrews 12:30).

We sometimes tend to take God for granted knowing that He is loving, merciful and forgiving so we end up deliberating offending and hurting our God who for our sake sent His one and only Son to die a humiliating death on the cross so we could be reconciled back to Him. Prophetess Juanita Bynum once preached that we know God to be loving, kind, merciful and tender but God is also a killer. We should not play with the grace we live in and abuse it. For Romans 2:5-6 clearly says that, “but by your hard and unchanged heart, you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of the revelation of God's judging in righteousness who will give to every man his right reward.”

This verse really hit me hard. How many times have I consciously done something wrong with the intention of confessing it later knowing that the Lord would forgive me? We are blessed to have a God who would freely forgive our sins when we confess them to Him and not demand something outrageously impossible as a penalty but are we being fair by abusing this wonderful grace given us? 1 Peter 4:17 says, “for the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God...” so we the redeemed, do we want to hear say “Well done, my good and faithful servant” or do we want to feel his wrath at His judgment?

Let's ponder over this and pray for forgiveness of our folly and ask for more grace to live a holy and perfect life as He is holy and perfect. Let's not forget that our God indeed is a consuming fire. This is not to be scared of our Lord but to fear Him in holiness and revere Him and live lives that are suitable for the gracious title of “Christians.” I know we can do it, we just have to ask for His grace.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

How can we ever forget His mercy and grace! So we must always critique our lives at the end of each day and if we find ourselves to be lacking in any way, like King David repent of your sins and ask for His forgivness! Wonderful and always a timely message!
