I enjoy watching many of the ‘judge’ shows on TV.  Most times the people seem to understand and accept the decision of the judge.  Sometimes however they find it difficult to see that they have done anything wrong.  They say the judge didn’t listen to their argument, the law is wrong, the judge made a bad decision or the other person told nothing but lies.  They just seem unable to accept the decision of the judge.

    God gave us many rules and laws that are intended to make our lives easier.  It is our decision whether or not we choose to obey them.  When we stand before God there will be no discussion.  Our actions and words in this life decide our fate.

    In Romans 10:9 Paul says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (KJV)  That is the decision God has laid before us that will determine where will spend eternity.  That is why Jesus was born on this earth as a man, to redeem us from our sins against His laws.
