Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given. Proverbs 25:11
This is an interesting verse because the author implies that a rightly given judgement might not happen often! People are biased, and that includes judges. Often judges must make decisions quickly because their docket is filled that day. But when he or she does get it right, there is satisfaction.
On That Day, the perfect judgement will be made about each of us.
On That Day, we will be satisfied and content with that decision because it will have been a perfect one.
More than 2000 years ago when Jesus came to Earth, He did so for us, the Righteous for the unrighteous. He bore our sins and His Righteousness was “imputed” to us when we believe. What does that mean? His Righteousness has become our righteousness. The judgement we should have endured was instead placed upon the Son. Yes, the terminology of what happened so long ago is confusing. The concept is simple but powerful. He took our judgement upon Himself.
Going back to the theme of the devotional, if we wait to make that decision for Christ, it will be too late. If we wait until we’re good enough or do enough things or say enough prayers, it will never be enough.
It is through faith and faith alone that we enter into the Divine relationship with Christ.
