So every single one of you who judge others is without any excuse. You condemn yourself when you judge another person because the one who is judging is doing the same things. 2 We know that God’s judgment agrees with the truth, and his judgment is against those who do these kinds of things. 3 If you judge those who do these kinds of things while you do the same things yourself, think about this: Do you believe that you will escape God’s judgment? 4 Or do you have contempt for the riches of God’s generosity, tolerance, and patience? Don’t you realize that God’s kindness is supposed to lead you to change your heart and life? 5 You are storing up wrath for yourself because of your stubbornness and your heart that refuses to change. God’s just judgment will be revealed on the day of wrath. 6 God will repay everyone based on their works. 7 On the one hand, he will give eternal life to those who look for glory, honor, and immortality based on their patient good work. 8 But on the other hand, there will be wrath and anger for those who obey wickedness instead of the truth because they are acting out of selfishness and disobedience. 9 There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 10 But there will be glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does what is good, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 11 God does not have favorites. (Romans 2:1-11, CEB)
Now this is not very Lutheran, but according to what Paul wrote to the Romans here, God will give us what we gave. If we did good to others, God will give us good. If we did evil to others, we will get wrath and anger.
Not really the loving God we know from other parts of the bible.
I do believe we will stand in judgement and everything we have done will be recounted which brings anxiety to rise. We all are responsible for our actions, but the Grace of Christ covers us and makes us right with God.
Love Out Loud and let light and grace flow from your everyday actions. Do this because God first loved you when you were unlovable.
Love People. Love God.
