God Is Not Trying to Get Even!

“For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”

1 Corinthians 11:31-32

What should you do if there’s sin in your life? It may be the sin of coldness. It may be what you’d consider a very small sin. No matter what it is, deal with it immediately. In today’s text, we are reminded God is not trying to get even with you. God just wants you to be corrected. When parents punish children, they’re not trying to get even with them; they’re trying to correct them. There are some children that all you have to do is look at them, and their little hearts will melt. And when a child shows change and no longer shows disobedience, you don’t say, “I’m going to punish that child anyway.” No. What you want is a change of behavior. Likewise, Paul reminded us, “If we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.” God is not trying to get even with you. God wants to lovingly correct you.

  • How does God’s correction display His love in our lives?
  • When have you experienced the loving correction of God?

ACTION POINT

Pray and ask God where He wants to correct you now. Respond appropriately.

How do I get to Heaven when I die?

John 3:16 makes it pretty clear: You have to Believe on Jesus Christ and you will be saved! No matter who you are! No matter what you have done wrong in your life, KNOW THAT GOD, JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT LOVES YOU!

To “Believe” upon Jesus means that

1.) You Believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on the Cross at Calvary as payment for ALL of your sins, was buried in a borrowed tomb and Arose from the dead on the 3rd Day we call Easter and accept Him as your Personal Savior;

2. You Repent of your sinful ways (Breaking God’s Laws in the 10 Commandments: a.) Worship only God, b.) Have no other gods before Him, c.) Don’t use His Name in vain, d.) Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy, e.) Honor your Parents, f.) Don’t kill anyone, g.) Don’t commit adultery, h.) Don’t Steal, i.) Don’t lie about other people or yourself & j.) Don’t Covet anything that is your neighbors) and try to stop sinning;

3.) You give complete control of your life to Jesus Christ!

Doing these 3 things, the Holy Spirit will enter your Soul, you will be “Born Again” Spiritually and the Holy Spirit will SEAL your position PERMANENTLY in Heaven and WRITE YOUR NAME IN THE “LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!” Again: See Chapter 20 Verse 15 to see why that is CRITICALLY important:

Revelation 20:15 – And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”
