Hebrews 10:30-31 - Today’s devotional

Phil Ware’s devotional (www.crosswalk.com) emphasizes on the responsibility to defend and protect innocent and helpless victims. However, just in the US, more than 10 billion land animals raised for food are abused in factory farms and slaughter houses, where they suffer unimaginable fear and pain, with the protection of the law. It is the industries that contribute to the exploitation of animals for food that we must not support. It is our duty, as followers of Christ, to take a stand and protect God’s creatures, since without us they wouldn’t have a voice.

Hebrews 10:30-31 We know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people." It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Thoughts on today's verse: God hates injustice, unfairness, brutality and abuse. In a world where the greedy, the murderous, the thieves, the rapists, the muggers... get away with their shameless and despicable behavior, God is the ultimate assurance that justice will be done and the wicked will not triumph. While those who love and expect Jesus' return do so with anticipation and joy, those who are evil and vile will find out what a dreadful thing it is to fall into God's hands.

Prayer: Holy and Righteous God, my Heavenly Father, I am both uncomfortable and comforted to know that you will bring justice on those who have violently abused the innocent, weak, helpless, underprivileged, and infirm. Give me the courage to stand between the evil of my world and those on whom it preys. By the grace and victory of Jesus I pray. Amen.
