Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. Psalm 1:5
This is a merely a continuation of the previous verse. There will come a day, and quite possibly in the not-too-distant future, that the wicked will be judged. We don’t look forward to that day necessarily but we shouldn’t shy away from it either.
In Genesis, the Bible states that “the Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become.” When we see the word “wicked,” we don’t always equate it with us! But it’s true. Romans 3:23 teaches us that “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” We’re wicked; we’re sinners; we’ve fallen short of the glory of God. And what do we get for this being all of this? “For the wages of sin is death.”
Ouch. Seems harsh, doesn’t it?
“What a wretched man I am. Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God–through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 7:24
The sin, the sinner, the solution, and the Savior.
