The Scale Of Justice

Justice.  The moral principle determining just conduct.  The quality of being just; righteousness or moral rightness.  This is how the dictionary defines justice.  There are many other definitions as well, but they are all similar.  But only a judgement can determine if someone is just, morally right or righteous. 

In one predominate view of God we see Him as the great judge of the universe.  We will all have to stand in His Righteous Judgement.  But maybe there is more to the story.

In John chapter 3 and verse 17 it reads:  For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 

Verse 18 helps us understand even more:  He who believes in Him is not judged;  he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 

Mankind has been placed on the scale of righteousness and been found lacking.  We have failed the test.  We have been found guilty.  We cannot measure up.

The Gospel is…we have failed…He has not!  He gives us His right-ness,  his sinlessness,  making us succeed in being right!  Our part is to believe!  It is a gift!

The scale is tipped in our favor! 

Do you realize that in Christ you have been made to measure up and succeed in pleasing God?
