God shows no partiality

Scripture reading for June 14th:  Romans 2, Psalm 119, Proverbs 26

Key Scriptures:  Romans 2:6-11 “He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, He will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury.  There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek.  For God shows no partiality.”

God is ultimately and perfectly just.  God alone knows all things about each person, Jew or Gentile.  He knows the heart and the actions proceeding from the heart, whether good or bad.  He has promised to reward each person according to their works based on the faith they hold.  He is impartial.  Only those who hold faith in Jesus Christ and His righteousness can do good works.

Faith Confession:  I believe in Jesus Christ and seek to do His will by obeying His Word and the Holy Spirit leading me in the good works He has prepared for me. I want to stand before God and be rewarded.  Deliver me from laziness and apathy.

Proverbs 26:14  “As a door turns on its hinges, so does a sluggard on his bed.”
