Healing In The House of God - 3
1 Peter 4:17-19
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
Peter presents a simile to what appears to be a double question. If the house of God is judged, then what of sinners (1 Peter 4:18, Proverbs 11:31)? In this passage, the question of verse 18 is reframed with the ideology of righteousness and how close they will come to not being saved (Ezekiel 18:24). The mental picture is that we must not buy into entitlement or feeling a certain way based on ignorance of the situation. The house of God assumes it is saved, but as James 2:14-8, 26 depicts, Faith has to have works, described as a functioning body. Only God can speak things into existence. We who Grace saves are dedicated to works through salvation (James 2:20)! This clarifies that Grace must do the work due to the Faith we have in Jesus who saves us. Is righteousness a free ride?
Elohei Marom, God of Heights - Micah 6:6; we thank You for being the God of Heights, our God who is above everything. We praise You for opening our eyes to the plight of the righteous who Grace saves. Therefore, we decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those saved in the judgment of the House of God; so that, we who live this life are ready for the Grace of Salvation. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with the anointing of the Holy Ghost, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
