“O inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, please, between Me and My vineyard. What more could have been done to My vineyard that I have not done to it?” (Isaiah 5:3-4)
When life gets bad, people always want to ask, “If God is so good, why did this happen?” God would reply to them, “What more could I have done? Could I have given you more land? Could I have given you more days? Could I have given you a better job? All that you have to do is be fruitful, multiply, and give back.” The question they should really ask themselves is this: Why didn’t I do something with what I had when I had it?
Be challenged by Romans
Romans doesn’t let us sit still. In Romans, Paul talks about the obligation we are under to spread the truth of the Gospel and to engage with the culture around us. He talks about the journey we must make after we accept the God’s gift of salvation. We are called to leave our comfortable and easy corners and spread the message of Christ’s sacrifice to everyone around us, because we have been freely justified!
