He Blesses The Home Of The Just…
We are not here to judge others. The life a person lives is of their choosing and none of our business. Followers and believers of Jesus Christ are here to share the Living Word and help others to drink deeply of Living Water. Sharing the Good News with those who are willing to open their ears and open their eyes.
If a person is living outside the law and living in sin are we to stop them? Are we to make them to be a believer, a follower of Jesus Christ or are we to share the Living Word and allow God to provide the increase?
The heathen knows no better as he lives outside the law but sees the follower, the believer in Jesus Christ as a refuge, a safe harbor and knows he is safe in their presence.
Do not devise evil against your neighbor,
For he dwells by you for safety’s sake.
Do not strive with a man without cause,
If he has done you no harm.
Do not envy the oppressor,
And choose none of his ways;
For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord,
But His secret counsel is with the upright.
The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked,
But He blesses the home of the just. ~ Proverbs 3:29-33 NKJB
We should be a beacon of hope, a beacon of Light for all. We should remind those living outside the law and outside grace they are welcome in the House of the Lord, however, that does not mean they will be saved. It does not mean salvation is upon them. It does mean they, too, can be saved and they can come under the wing of salvation, through the atonement of Jesus Christ, by repenting of their sinful life, their sinful ways. Otherwise…
Surely He scorns the scornful,
But gives grace to the humble.
The wise shall inherit glory,
But shame shall be the legacy of fools. ~ Proverbs 3:34-35 NKJB
We can continue to live foolishly or we can be redeemed. Free will or God’s will. Our worship basket, which is built in to every person that ever was, that is and all that are to come, is an open space, created by God, for God, and He allows us to put in this basket whatever we choose. Choose wisely.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
