Why We Worship 10



justice, God
I am taking time each week to ask myself "Why we worship"


Isaiah 30 v 18 states that
    The Lord is a God of justice

God lets no sinner off the hook without a fitting punishment, or a fitting substitutionary atonement.

God is concerned with all the wrongs in this world.

God wants to right those wrongs.


I am thankful that God cares about the things that are evil and wrong because ultimately they hurt me and everyone else.

So it is very comforting to remember what it says in His Word and realise that God is in control even though we tend to focus on the wrongs.



Can you take comfort in this today?

Can you worship God because He is Just?

    Meditating on God as Just is awesome and the more I think on it I am glad and comforted to know that my heavenly Father is Just and His Justice is sure and He neither has favourites nor is impartial. His Justice is the same today as it always was, as it is in the OT God's justice has not changed. I am thankful for Jesus and God's mercy and grace and that makes me worship Him with awe and reverence.

  2. Hi Sandra,

    It certainly is a comfort that our God is concerned with justice, and that everything is within His hands.

  3. We have been talking about this in our Bible Study...when we witness we need to present God in his entirety, a loving God AND a righteous God too.

  4. I think with the uber grace message, we forget about the laws of God and that God is a God of justice. Thanks for linking at Pintastic Pinteresting Party.
