Scripture: Romans 12:3, Romans 1:32
Romans 12:3 says, “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.” Romans 1:32, by using the Greek word axios for worthy, sets the stage for our understanding of the application of Jesus and Justice. Axios was a commercial banking term and it means in its simplest form means weigh and pay. Whatever a person bought was set in the scales. Then the equivalent amount of gold or silver was set in the scales to balance. So whatever they wanted had to be purchased with the exact measure of value. When we move over to Romans 12:3 it is obvious that the Lord is giving everyone the measure of faith both for salvation and for justice that we need to carry out our assignments in the earth. The church in the last days will face ever increasing adversity and persecution from government, from religion and from God-haters in the culture. The good news is the Bible clearly says that we have the measure of faith necessary to deal with it! Scripture makes it clear no weapon formed against us will prosper and every tongue that rises against us in judgment we must deal with, we must be the ones that condemn it. If we do not like what we see rising in the culture, it is incumbent on us to move God’s Hand and change it so we can gain the harvest Jesus bought and paid for in our generation!
