Casey Anthony, OJ, and others.

We are included in that title, yep, you and me.

Psalm 139:7-16

God has perfect knowledge of us, and all our thoughts and actions are open before him. It is more profitable to meditate on Divine truths, applying them to our own cases, and with hearts lifted to God in prayer, than with a curious or disputing frame of mind. That God knows all things, is omniscient; that he is every where, is omnipresent; are truths acknowledged by all, yet they are seldom rightly believed in by mankind. God takes strict notice of every step we take, every right step and every by step. He knows what rule we walk by, what end we walk toward, what company we walk with. When I am withdrawn from all company, thou knowest what I have in my heart. There is not a vain word, not a good word, but thou knowest from what thought it came, and with what design it was uttered. Wherever we are, we are under the eye and hand of God. We cannot by searching find how God searches us out; nor do we know how we are known. Such thoughts should restrain us from sin.

You  know, I didnt think Casey Anthony would get off completely, I mean how did OJ?  So much evidence, so many lies!   But with the way it goes, the American people are innocent until PROVEN guilty.  If the evidence cant prove it 100% we might get acquitted of charges, here on earth…

If we lie, if we have an affair, if we arent responsible with what God has given us, if we steal, if we are drunkards, if we deny Him, the list goes on and on.  We might “get away”  with sin, right now, and we all sin dont we? (Romans 3:23)

There will come a day though.

The ruler of the universe knows everything about all of us, whether you claim to believe in Him or not, He created us.  We have all sinned against Him in some way shape or form, even if we havent murdered anyone.  Sin = Sin (James 2:10-13).

If we do not have His son, we will be judged guilty of sin, and the penalty for sin in God’s eyes, is death (Romans 6:23).  Except, if His son intercedes for us (Romans 3:24). 

When He comes back, no one will be without excuse (Romans 1:20).

When will your court date be?  While you still have breath to call upon His name or will it be face to face with Him,  when you die?  Have you already been set free?!  Do we remember the price that someone else paid for us?

So, we can say all we want about what their verdict should be, but we are all sinners needing and undeserving of the same mercy and grace (Romans 2:1). 

{So thankful for the freedom from a guilty verdict of sin today through Christ}

Romans 5:15-21

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! 18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.20 The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
