Who is the Christ? He is the absolute of everything good. He is the absolute end of everything wicked or ungodly. He is the very Living Word of the Living God.
Every word of God continues forever, for the Sovereign God is Living purity. But God has sent his Living word among us that he may cease for the sake of his enemy’s lives; that God Himself may become the sacrifice.
How great, earnest and eternal is the Living God’s pledge to save our souls?
Considering this I am struck by our lack of confidence. Though it is eternally impossible for God to lie, and though he has sealed his intent in his own blood, somehow most people just can’t believe it. No matter what they hear they want their own righteousness. To those, I must say: what you want is an absolute impossibility. Nothing that is unrighteous can, all of a sudden, become righteous by itself. And all it takes is one tiny misstep or mistake.
Others have believed the message, but they find themselves doubting with a horrifying frequency. They lack the courage to trust the word of the Living God. They do not trust him enough to give him the entirety of their life. To these God’s Living Word remains a nice religion, perhaps even a means of socially acceptable behavior.
How is the second group any different than the first? First is to proud, the second is filled with cowardice. What should either Group expect to hear on the day when they see the face of the Living God’s Holy and Righteous Word?
Can it be said that by their lives they have called the Sovereign God a liar?
It is not for me to judge. It is not for me to condemn or extend ungodly mercy. I have only presented the argument and asked the question.
