Romans. 2:15 They show that what the law requires is written in their hearts, a fact to which their own consciences testify, and their thoughts will either accuse or excuse them.

The law as given to Moses revealed principles of conduct to be observed.

But added to that was the further revelation of the redemption process by Christ and by the other scripture writers.

The conversion of a man is an instantaneous process, but there is a lifetime of discovery of the fullness of redemption.

Acts.24:16 In view of this, I also do my best to maintain always a blameless conscience both before God and before men.

The apostle Paul saw the practice of men excusing themselves when they violated their conscience as totally unacceptable for any Christian at any time.

He set forth himself as an example; 1 Cor. 11:1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

This is the measure by which every Christian must measure themselves, not just being a little better than what the church considers, “The sinners”.

There is the practice in the church today of acceptable behavior being a product of following other carnal Christians who allow almost anything in their lives. This is a formula for unacceptable to GOD permissiveness.

2Cor. 10:12 Oh, don't worry; we wouldn't dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant!

How ignorant, this is Paul’s way of saying; “Straighten up and fly right.” The old saying; “practice what you preach” is still a good policy for this day and age.

Christians are required to “Live right and spit white,” or in other words walk according to the commands of GOD,

2 Corinthians 5:10 (NIV) For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

And again; 2 Timothy 2:5 (NIV) Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor’s crown unless he competes according to the rules.

Wages are what we work for, and our pay can be based upon several factors. It may be hourly, A salary, Or piece work, Likewise our service for GOD carries with it the expectation or a reward at the end of our shift.

Job 4:8 As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.

Make no mistake about this: You can never make a fool out of God.

Whatever you plant is what you'll harvest. While you can be forgiven for your sin, you will be rewarded accordingly.
