July 4, 2022 – God Is Not Trying to Get Even

1 Corinthians 11:31-32

Sermon: 1978 – The High Cost of Low Living

Pray Over This

“For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”

1 Corinthians 11:31-32

Ponder This

What should you do if there’s sin in your life? It may be the sin of coldness. It may be what you’d consider a very small sin. No matter what it is, deal with it immediately. In today’s text, we are reminded God is not trying to get even with you. God just wants you to be corrected. When parents punish children, they’re not trying to get even with them; they’re trying to correct them.

There are some children that all you have to do is look at them, and their little hearts will melt. And when a child shows change and no longer shows disobedience, you don’t say, “I’m going to punish that child anyway.” No. What you want is a change of behavior. Likewise, Paul reminded us, “If we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.” God is not trying to get even with you. God wants to lovingly correct you.

  • How does God’s correction display His love in our lives?
  • When have you experienced the loving correction of God?

Practice This

Pray and ask God where He wants to correct you now. Respond appropriately.
