The word judge is volatile. Maybe it’s because we don't want anyone to tell us what to do… not even God. Maybe it’s because too often we put ourselves on God’s throne, hand down a ruling, determine a penalty, and even insist that it be carried out (and more often than not we get it wrong). In our worship today, let God the Spirit show you through his Word the kind of Judge God is. You’ll notice most of our prayers, songs, and talk is from God’s Word. You’re about to experience what God does through it. May he fill your life with blessing…and fill you with trust in surprising judgments.
