Week 17: Will God Allow Our Disobedience and Idolatry To Go Unpunished?

Will God allow our disobedience and idolatry to go unpunished?

Ephesians 5:5-6
For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.

Answer
No, God is righteously angry with our sins and will punish them both in this life, and in the life to come.

Prayer
Lord God, your Son came to earth and died on the cross. He is the hope of the guilty, the Savior of sinners. We owe him our trust, our love, and our total obedience. If Christ were not ours; you would still be righteously angry with our sins. If Christ were not ours; we would be punished for our sins ourselves. But we have been saved and Christ is ours! Amen.
