Faithful to Condemn

But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God. —Romans 2:5

Let us now look at God’s faithfulness in its application. As it applies to sinners, if you are lost and you know it, God has declared that He will banish from His presence all who love sin and reject His Son. God has promised that; He has declared that; He has warned and threatened, and it will be so. Let no one trust a desperate hope, for it is based on the belief that God threatens but doesn’t fulfill. No, God waits that He may be gracious! And He will sometimes postpone in order to give us another thirty days, another sixty days, to make up our minds. But just as sure as the mills of God grind, the souls of men fall into them and are ground exceedingly small. God moves slowly and is very patient, but God has promised that He will banish from His presence all who love sin, who reject His Son and refuse to believe.

That is the message for the sinner who won’t come, who loves his sin.

Lord, help me do my part to warn unrepentant sinners that “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” and that our sentence has been postponed only because we have a merciful God (Hebrews 10:31). Amen.
