Proverbs of a 37 yr old man

God judges everyone in fairness by the same standard. He will reward each of us for what we have done. He will give eternal life to everyone who has patiently done what is good in the hope of receiving glory, honor, and life that lasts forever. But God will show how angry and furious he can be with every selfish person who rejects the truth and wants to do evil. All who are wicked will be punished with trouble and suffering. It doesn't matter if they are Jews or Gentiles. Jesus doesn't have any favorites! Those people who don't know about God's Law will still be punished for what they do wrong. And the Law will be used to judge everyone who knows what it says. 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. Some people naturally obey the Law's commands, even though they don't have the Law. This proves that the conscience is like a law written in the human heart. You can't fake good conscience. It will show whether we are forgiven or condemned, when God appoints Jesus Christ to judge everyone's secret thoughts, just as the Gospel message says. The human conscience was originally created in the image of God, but marred because of sin. Humanity is now being reborn into the image of God's only Son Jesus. None of us lives up to the demands of our own conscience, let alone the demands that God has given. We need God's mercy in Christ desperately. We know a guilty conscience needs no accuser. If you know that you have done something wrong, you do not need anyone to tell you that you are guilty. It is in this space that Jesus writes his law of love in our hearts. The best way I can explain this is: In the beginning was the Word. and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Jesus is the Living Word, the ancient Bible come to life. Through relationship with Him, He is writing his law in our hearts. If you know him personally as LORD in your life, than you are obeying the law of God. Your conscience will bear witness to this, whether your forgiven or condemned.
