Condemning the Just - Broadcast for February 5, 2013

The Bible has much to say about the rich, and little of it good. The problem seems always to be; seeing to personal comfort and wealth at the expense of others. It is not wrong to be wealthy but there is a sense of superiority that some rich folk carry along with them. Instead of recognizing their wealth as a blessing from God they regard wealth and power as of their own making.

In James 5:5-6 we read: You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you. (James 5:5-6 NKJV)

The rich are charged with holding back the wages of their workers and living in pleasure on the proceeds. Those set in luxury set upon Jesus and had Him crucified. He threatened their power and wealth and therefore had to be put to death. They murdered the just and He did not resist. Some would think that no resistance meant God’s approval, but it did not. Look at the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. Wealth does not translate to eternity, you brought nothing into this world and you can take nothing out.

The misery avoided in this life because of wealth, will be visited on you in eternity and there is only one remedy; you must give all you are to Christ, trust Him to be your savior, give of your wealth to help the poor and needy; pay the wages you have withheld and gain all that God has as a joint-heir with His Son and your savior, Jesus Christ. As long as you cling to your wealth you will never take hold of Christ.
