Devotion : Avoiding God’s wrath…

March 30, 2012

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him. John 3:36 NIV

Pretty scary, heavy verse. Just recently a friend of mine strongly disagreed that the only way to God and heaven is through Jesus. I think this verse is pretty clear. But what I want to do with this verse is connect some of the dots that we have been discussing lately.

The First is just so everyone is on the same page; Jesus is God’s Son that was sent in the body of a human to be the Savior of the World. He did this by living life as a man, living a sinless, perfect life. Then suffering torture, and a horrific death. Jesus then rose from the dead three days after he died. Jesus’ blood that was shed is what makes it possible for us to find forgiveness through repentance.

This is beyond big, a humungous deal that I am in no way giving the credit it deserves.

But because of this sacrifice Jesus did, God now declares that belief in the Resurrection is the only way to God. It is our starting point of salvation. But we learned a few weeks ago in John 14:21 that in order to Love the Son or in my opinion not reject the Son; we must obey the Son. Member that one, Obedience = Love?

Now just the last few days we have discussed and seen examples of God’s wrath. God dont play and basically you dont want to piss him off, or be on his bad side. You will lose. So what do we do? We first believe in our hearts that Jesus is the way the truth and the life through his resurrection. Secondly we obey Jesus, by following his commands in the Bible. We follow out of Love, not cause we have to. Or else there is no point.

Now we are able to avoid God’s wrath.

Simple. Sort of.

    For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him – 1 Thessalonians 5:9-10.

    God doesn’t appoint anyone to His wrath. We appoint ourselves to His wrath through rejection of His son Jesus Christ and disobedience to His commands. God wants us all to obtain salvation through belief in His son Jesus Christ. However, God will not force us to believe in Christ. It is our choice, our free willl, whether or not to believe in Jesus Christ.

    STRENGTH & HONOR IN THE LORD!!!!!
