BUT FOR GOD’S GRACE

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Rom 2:14-16

14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, 15 since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.) 16 This will take place on the day when God will judge men's secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares.

NIV

Mr. Davidson was very angry with Oliver because he came home to meet his bedroom totally messed up again. He had told Oliver that even though he had never been instructed not to mess up the room, Oliver knew that what He did was wrong, and this was why Oliver ran away when Mr. Davidson returned from work. Mr. Davidson decided to punish Oliver this time because despite the fact that Oliver was now instructed not to mess up the room he still messed it up.

God had given all humans a conscience to discern what is right from wrong. So even though the gentiles didn’t have the laws of God (as it were), their consciences and righteous customs were a law for them. Just like Oliver, when a man now knows what sin is because of His knowledge of the law of God and still continues sinning, he is committing two offences; he is disregarding God’s word and breaking God’s law. But isn’t that the story of all humans? But for God’s grace there would have been no real hope for salvation.

Go into today knowing that God has put his laws in your heart and mind. You now have a renewed mind that accurately discerns right from wrong and you walk righteously and shine your light by choosing to do what is right at all times. All of this is done by faith in Christ Jesus through which you receive the empowerment that is required.

Prayer: thank you heavenly father for your great love and mercy. I pray dear lord that I will not walk outside of your grace from this day forth, in Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen
