A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“A good man obtaineth favour of the Lord: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.”
Note the words “a good man” obtains God’s favor. The question may be what is a good man? It is a person that loves God and desires to do His will in-other-words one that has been born again. The Scriptures does not say a great man, rich man, strong man, a man of rank. If these were the qualifications not very many of us would abtain the favor of God. By being born again into the kingdom of God everyone can have the opportunity to have the favor by God. Notice the rest of the verse “the Lord condemns” --- one that has not been born again will receive the condemnation of God. So we see one obtains favor of God and another will receive condemnation of God. Which are you today? Are you in God’s favor or under His condemnation?
To have God’s favor---we must have a sincere and pure heart
