Judge What is Right

“And why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right? For while you are going with your opponent to appear before the magistrate, on your way there make an effort to settle with him, so that he may not drag you before the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. I say to you, you will not get out of there until you have paid the very last cent.”~Luke 12:57-59

In this parable your opponent is The Lord, the magistrate and judge are God, the officer are His angles, and the prison, hell.

This parable is telling us to take a look at our sins and judge what is right, to look into the mirror of God's law and judge ourselves according to His Holy standard, on our own initiative before we go before God in judgment. Don't think that your going to be able to go before the judge and plead your own case, then it will be to late. Look at your sins now and judge yourself by your own initiative and make an effort to settle with your opponent before coming before the magistrate and judge; it is God whom you have offended, so it is with God you need to settle.

God has made a way for us to be made right with Him and Christ Jesus is the only way; "whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith." Judge yourself by God's Holy law, then repent and believe in the gospel.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast." ~Ephesians 2:8-9
