No Favoritism with God

But because you are stubborn and refuse to turn from your sin, you are storing up terrible punishment for yourself. For a day of anger is coming, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed. He will judge everyone according to what they have done. He will give eternal life to those who keep on doing good, seeking after the glory and honor and immortality that God offers. But he will pour out his anger and wrath on those who live for themselves, who refuse to obey the truth and instead live lives of wickedness. There will be trouble and calamity for everyone who keeps on doing what is evil—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. 10 But there will be glory and honor and peace from God for all who do good—for the Jew first and also for the Gentile. 11 For God does not show favoritism.

Romans 2:5-11 NLT

One thing is sure. One day everyone will be judged. Keep on doing good OR live a life of wickedness. There is a choice to be made. God is a loving God. He is also a God of judgement.

12 When the Gentiles sin, they will be destroyed, even though they never had God’s written law. And the Jews, who do have God’s law, will be judged by that law when they fail to obey it. 13 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. 14 Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it. 15 They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. 16 And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.

Romans 2:12-16
Pray with me please.

Father God,

Your word is so powerful, giving us wisdom, encouragement and enlightenment. One day You will judge every man. Please help us to stay on the right path and keep our hearts pure. We need You, Lord. While we are in this body we want so badly to be doing things that are right in Your sight. Sometimes we fail You by getting caught up in the flesh. Forgive us and draw us back to Your side. Help us daily to walk in forgiveness, mercy and Your strength. We love You and ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    1. Because of God’s mercy, He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy (Romans 9:15). We are not instructed anywhere in scripture to be haughty, rather we are to be humble. Being proud is a sin (Proverbs 6:16-19). God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble (1 Peter 5:5). The Bible says there is none good, no not one (Romans 3;10). Jesus even answered a ruler with this statement, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone” (Luke 18:19). Isaiah 64:6 says that all of our righteousness is like filthy rags before God. We are not to puff ourselves up. There is nothing we can do to be more prestigious. We are not to even have the thoughts of being great. The disciples even argued about which of them would be the greatest. Jesus knowing their thoughts then brought a child before them and said, ‘For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest’ (Luke 9:46-48). Then in Luke 18:13 we see the tax collector didn’t even look to heaven when he prayed, rather he beat his chest and said, ‘God be merciful to me a sinner.’ In verse 14 of the same chapter Jesus said that he returned home justified before God. He also said that those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted. We all get God’s attention the day we accept Christ as our Savior. For God has provided everything that we need in Him. May the Lord Jesus receive all the praise now and forevermore.
