Jubilant, Joy, and Judge

God is love and God is just.  Many people accept the former but ignore the latter.  Remember the sheep and the goats (Matthew 25:31-46).  Are we living in Christ's righteousness and in His truth (according to His Word) or are we living in worldliness and in the lies of the culture?  We have to daily choose.  Our choice will be judged by the Lord.  Let's sing for joy before the Lord for He is our Righteous Judge filled with compassion, mercy, and grace.

"My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.  God is a Righteous Judge, a God who expresses His wrath everyday." Psalm 7:10-11

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7-8

Love it! Can't wait to see the trees praising God in heaven (at least I'm hopeful we'll get to see that!!)

Such a lovely WFW.

Cathy said...

Just beautiful, I love verses about His creation praising Him.

Blessings & singing with these trees before the Lord! Jubilant in Him!

Beautiful view in this photo & indeed this verse speaks of His righteousness and reminds us that He will judge the world. Inspirational thoughts!

As I thought of Jesus coming to judge the earth, I thought of this: perhaps though it is not the earth's fault but those of us who inhabit it, all the natural disasters from fire, to hurricane, to flooding, to earthquake, to typhoon, to tornadoes could be judgement on the earth.

My photo was not taken by me, but the graphics I did on a photo I had in my files...if I had a photo of Jesus coming in the clouds, I pray we would be gone!

Thanks for your visits & sharing this Psalm with this great photo!

Very true! Many Christians are selective, only chose to believe that God is love and ignoring that God is a consuming fire as well.

God bless you for your sharing.
