Each of us shall give account of himself to God.
Romans 14:12.

At our Christian bookstall in the town an elderly gentleman to whom I chatted reacted amicably and with interest. I spoke to him about the love of God, who does not want people to be lost on account of their sins. God therefore sent Jesus Christ into the world to die on the cross for sinners, so that they can be saved for the glory of heaven.

The man listened attentively and accepted the calendar that I offered him. A few hours later he suddenly re-appeared and told me enthusiastically that he had given the calendar to his neighbour: “It was just what he needed, as if it was written for him!” He himself didn’t need a calendar, but the neighbour!

What a pity! He was convinced that his neighbour needed God. But it was beneath his dignity to think that he was himself in the same situation. It was good of him to be so considerate towards his neighbour, but he himself was surely not lost!

How many think likewise! They push their own situation, their own guilt and the question of eternity to the back of their minds, imagining that the message of the Bible is good for others, when in fact they themselves need salvation.

“Each of us shall give account of himself to God.” Each one for himself! This is the right moment to think of oneself. Looking at the neighbour avoids the issue. We must not run away from our own reflection in the mirror, but face it and confess our own guilt to put things in order with God. Then we are in a position to pass the message on to others.

Today’s reading: Habakkuk 2:1-20 · Mark 10:13-22

It may be that Jehovah will look on mine affliction, and that Jehovah will requite me good for my being cursed this day. And David and his men went by the way; and Shimei went along on the hill’s side over against him, and cursed as he went, and threw stones at him, and cast dust.

THE DAY OF FAVOUR

Queen Esther found favour in the sight of the king and she was promised blessings up to one half of the kingdom. There are lots of lessons in the passage before us. First of these is that the king’s eyes located Esther. 1 Samuel 16:11-13 tells us how favour located David while he was watching over the flock of...More
