FINDING TRUTH



   

Rom 2:12-16
When the Gentiles sin, they will be destroyed, even though they never had God's written law. And the Jews, who do have God's law, will be judged by that law when they fail to obey it. 13 For merely listening to the law doesn't make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. 14 Even Gentiles, who do not have God's written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. 15 They demonstrate that God's law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. 16 And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone's secret life.
NLT
Mr. Stein was very angry with his thirteen year old daughter, Clara because two nights ago, he  and Susan his wife just arrived from a dinner and saw that Clara who just came home from boarding school used their bedroom toilet and didn’t flush, thoroughly messed up their bedroom; leaving some of her mom’s clothes on the floor. Mr. Stein told Clara that she should know that what she has done was wrong and that she shouldn’t play in their bedroom when they are not around. He was very angry because he came to discover that Clara not only played in their bedroom this time but took her friend there to play. He grounded Clara for a month; banned her from watching TV, seized her smartphone…
This story is an illustration of how that even though the gentiles did not have the law, they knew what was right and what was wrong; it also shows that even though the Jews had the law, they couldn’t keep it. The ‘law’ Mr. Stein gave to Clara was to deter her from messing up his room, when Clara messed up the room the second time, she committed two wrongs; the one was she did what she knew was wrong by messing up the room, the other was she disobeyed a direct instruction from her father.
The truth is that anyone who ultimately seeks to walk in truth and obey God’s law will find Jesus and serve Him. Many people who were born in Christian homes never met Jesus because they had no desire for the real truth…
Go into today knowing that God will judge everyone including everyone’s secret life.
Shalom
Prayer: Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your word and your grace you have given me to live in accordance with your will. I ask that I will walk always in the consciousness of your Holy Spirit that dwells within me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
