Topic: EVERY DEED; GOOD OR EVIL, JUDGES
Bible Text: Ecclesiastes 12:9-14
“For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil” Ecclesiastes 12:14, NIV
In our society today, it is becoming increasingly difficult to live uprightly. This is as a result of impunity; where the wicked go scot free while the righteous suffer for the offences they know nothing about. The world’s judicial system may be faulty or biased, but not that of God. Whatever a man does; whether good or bad will be brought to bear. Man may evade the world’s judgment based on political, ethnic or status affiliation, but the judgment of God is certain irrespective of connection. Every deed of man will be accounted for before the throne of judgment, whether good or bad.
The passage reveals three things:
(1) the judgment of God is certain
(2) He will not only judge outward and visible actions but even inward and secret thoughts
(3) He will judge every action and thought as it deserves (even the careless talks and jokes); whether good or evil.
If the searchlight of God is focused on your actions now, will you not be ashamed of your conducts and thoughts. Repent of every ungodly action and thought, and make your way right with your Maker.
Insight: There is a cam-scanner (camera and scanner) recording your thoughts and actions, so be careful.
Prayer: Lord, cleanse me from all ungodly thoughts and actions in Jesus name. RBT Passage: Ezekiel 5-8
