Showing God in action in and through His people.
God's character is the benchmark by which all human behavior is measured. God "always acts in a way consistent with the requirements of His character as revealed in His law. He rules His creation with honesty. He keeps His word. He renders to all His creatures their due." (The Wycliffe Bible Encyclopedia)
"Everything He does is just and fair. He is a faithful God who does no wrong; how just and upright He is!" (Deuteronomy 32:4)
God cannot be bribed or corrupted because His judgments are grounded in His integrity. Because He has all the facts at His disposal, He cannot be fooled. His decisions are always based upon absolute truth. And when God pronounces judgment, He has the power to carry out the punishment.
When Abraham learned that God planned to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham argued that God could not destroy the righteous with the unrighteous. He said:
"Far be it from You to do such a thing – to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from You! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?" (Genesis 18:25)
God's attributes assure us of justice. If He were not all-knowing, how could He know whether or not we sinned knowingly? If He were not present everywhere at once, how could He know all the circumstances surrounding the issue before Him? If He were not all-wise, how could He carry out judgment in a totally just way?
Your View of God Really Matters ...
If God's character, not our neighbor's, is the standard by which we are all judged, just how good do we have to be in order to please God? By faith, thank God that He has unconditionally forgiven you through Jesus' sacrifice.
