Our Father God is the Judge

By Tonja Taylor – Faith Writers

Once I had to appear before a judge. I was not in trouble, but I needed the judge to make an important decision for me. I was afraid of him, because the people before me had complained and argued and refused to listen—and the judge ordered one of them to jail for 30 days!

When the judge finally motioned to me to approach his high bench, he saw my fear. But he leaned forward, smiled, and whispered, “Yours is a different case.”

[God says] “For I will be leaning toward you with favor and regard for you …” Leviticus 26:9

I relaxed some, but I knew that this judge, though he was not God, had power to give me what I asked—or throw me in jail if I acted against him. Thank goodness, I knew I had his favor.

There is no judge higher than God. His Word–His Law–is the true Law. But we can’t follow His laws unless His Son, Jesus, comes into our hearts. Then God becomes our Father and forgives and favor us. Jesus becomes our Brother and helps us understand, obey, and be greatly blessed by God’s Word.

If we don’t receive Jesus, we are judged and condemned to hell forever when our bodies die. But when we receive Christ Jesus and stand before the Judgment Seat in Heaven (which every human ever born will! 2 Corinthians 5:10), we will be judged as righteous and acceptable to God (I John 5:12), Who is holy, and Who cannot abide sin–but only by our faith in the atoning, redemptive death of Jesus Christ for us on the cross! 

Have you asked Jesus to be your Savior and Helper today so you can obey Father God and enjoy His favor? He says in Romans 10:13 that all who call upon the Name of the LORD will be saved! 

If you want to receive Jesus as your Savior and LORD, say this prayer out loud: Dear Jesus, I know that without You, I am nothing. I thank You that You died on the cross for the whole world–and You would have done it just for me–to be saved from hell and death and be able to go to live in Heaven with You when our bodies die. And You want to give me Zoe life (John 10:10) now and help me get to know what a wonderful Savior, LORD, and Friend You are! I ask You to please forgive me of all my sins and come into my heart and be my Savior and LORD now. I receive You, and thank You for saving me. In Your Name, amen!

Congratulations! Now that you have received Jesus, there is great rejoicing in Heaven (Luke 15:7), and your name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Phil 4:3, Rev.3:5)! Now, ask the LORD to start teaching you how to live for Him!

He is forever faithful. He will!
