God is Just

Because GOD is just... He will always treat me fairly.

"I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve" Jeremiah 17:10 Discover God Study Bible (NLT)

Because God is just, He will always treat you fairly.

Justice is a pillar of society, ensuring that the innocent are vindicated and the guilty are punished. But all too often, this standard for justice is compromised for personal gain by corrupt judges and unscrupulous lawyers. Consequently, many people mistakenly believe they can manipulate God's system of justice. They think that God is fooled by their excuses and alibis.

However, as the holy and righteous sovereign of the universe, God cannot ignore any act of sin or self-centeredness. God hates sin with a holy passion. God's anger over sin should never be underestimated. But God also rewards right behavior. Although your salvation is secured by faith in Jesus Christ, your good works determine the rewards you will receive from Him.

We serve a just God, so what you do in this life will matter for eternity.
