Scripture: Acts 13:21-23
In Acts 13 God compares Saul with David. If we are going to choose a model for our development, we have the same choice. Saul refused to do God’s will and David joyfully did all God’s will. The doing of that will is based on the issue of executing God’s justice. Jesus clearly comes from the seed of David. And since all judgment has been given into His hands, the real question is, what kind of heart do we have? Are we developing a heart like David? Or are we embracing the unsanctified mercy of a Saul, the doctrine which is being peddled by the majority of our churches today? How often do we hear a message about executing God’s justice in today’s church? Thank God for every faithful pastor who presents tough love! Preparing the church to execute justice brings great resistance!
