God's 24/7 Menu
2 Corinthians 3:9 If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, (and the ministry of the Law was always on, 24/7, around the clock condemnation, in all of its forms, for all who tried to abide by it) how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! (24/7, around the clock righteousness, in all of its forms, for all alive in Christ.) (See 2 Corinthians 3:6-10. Italics mine.)
So I guessing that your inner alarm would go off if you ever heard in your mind, “I’m sorry, Sue, Ron, Jim, Mary, Ralph. This whole ministry of righteousness is tiring . . . It’s wearing on me, you know? I need a break, so I’m going to instead condemn you for a while. Maybe just a day or two . . . We’ll see how it goes.” That wouldn’t fool you, would it? You wouldn’t listen, no matter where it came from, or from whom it came. You wouldn’t, right?
Good. I didn’t think so.
