Judgment And Justice

Key Verse

“Then hear thou from heaven, and do, and judge thy servants, by requiting the wicked, by recompensing his way upon his own head; and by justifying the righteous, by giving him according to his righteous-ness” (2 Chronicles 6:23).

TEXT — 2 Chronicles 6:22-31


William Shakespeare once wrote a poem about the divine justice of God in contrast with men’s justice. “May one be pardoned, and retain the offence? In the corrupted currents of this world, offence’s gilded hand may shove by justice. And oft ‘tis seen the wicked prize itself buys out the law. But ‘tis not so above. There is no shuffling, there the action lies in his true nature”. How poignant!

Here, we read of the dedication of the temple in Jerusalem by King Solomon. He called on God to hear the prayers of the people and to forgive and restore the repentant so that the people might fear Him and walk in His ways. He specifically requested that God requite the wicked and justify the righteous.

Judgment is consistent with love. A God of love must be a God of justice. His justice balances His love and makes His acts meaningful. The world is corrupt and polluted with sin. For a long time, God had regretted that He had made man on the earth. Every imagination of man’s heart had been evil continually. Will man continue in his wilful disobedience and rebellion against God? No, for “…He hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness…” (Acts 17:31).

In justice and righteousness will Christ judge all ungodly deeds of men: secret sins, every idle words such as gossip, backbiting and slander; all foolish and non-edifying corrupt practices. God’s judgment will be without partiality or respect of persons. He will judge the great and the small, the rich and the poor, the educated and the illiterate, the highly respected and the most despised. The God of justice will receive no bribe to pervert judgment on the great day. Fortunately, true believers whose names are written in the Book of Life will not face the judgment since their judgment has already taken place at the point of salvation and their sins cleansed by Christ.

Thought for the day

God justifies the just and judges the unjust.
