God’s Purpose in Revealing the Truth

To Set the Standard of Judgment (Rom 2:2, 8)

The truth is God’s standard of judgment (Rom 2:6), and there is no partiality with Him. He will surely render to each one according to his deeds, and will grant eternal life to those who, by patient continuance in doing good, seek for glory, honor, and immortality (Rom 2:7), while those who do not believe the truth but have pleasure in unrighteousness will be condemned (2 Thess 2:12).

The Lord Jesus affirmed that we shall be judged by His words. He said: “I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day” (Jn 12:47–48). Jesus also said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. … Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock” (Mt 7:21, 24–25).

In addition, James tells us that it is not enough to simply listen to the word; we ought to put what we hear into practice: “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only”, for such “will be blessed” in what they do. God’s word is like a mirror, reflecting our imperfections. We need to look into this mirror and change ourselves, gradually becoming holy and complete, without spot and blemish, so that we will be able to face our Lord in peace (Jas 1:21–25; 2 Pet 3:14).
