PREACHING THIS MORNING...from Psalm 50, 'The Judgment of God'. All of creation, from rising sun to setting, are called before The Mighty One. The first to stand before His judgment are His 'godly ones'. He begins to testify against them. He reminds them that He does not need their sacrifice, but desires their reliance. The the wicked step forward. They have confused God's attitude with their own: 'You thought that I was just like you.' They have no right to call upon God's statutes and covenant. But this judgment is not final; it is a warning. The one who 'orders his way aright' will be shown 'the salvation of God'.
