By now some of you may be muttering: what about the abusive
husband, wife, master? Does God notice, does He even care?
Why would God put such impossible demands on us? He is
certainly not politically correct!!! I know that at times I react to
these verses--which are also in the book of Ephesians. But
listen again to verse 24:
(Do these things) “Knowing that from the Lord you will receive
the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
For the wrongdoer will be paid back for the wrong he has
done, and there is no partiality.”
What an encouragement for me to “stay the course.” God does
see, God does know, the abuser of power will be punished, and
God does not show partiality to those in high places of authority.
God is a God of justice. Hallelujah!
