Why must God reject evil?

November 12, 2019 by Dr. Jack Graham

You who are of purer eyes than to see evil

            and cannot look at wrong…

Habakkuk 1:13

Not long ago, I was at a basketball game and I sat down on some wooden bleachers. I felt a pain in my thumb, looked down, and saw I got a little splinter. I tried to get it out, but it wouldn’t budge. I thought it wasn’t that big of a deal because it was so small, I could barely even see it. So I forgot about it.

The next morning, I woke up with a throbbing, red, swollen thumb. That little tiny splinter had caused an infection because it was left in my thumb. So I finally got under some good light and was able to get it out. And soon, my thumb was back to normal.

It’s amazing how the slightest pollutant in the human body can cause a painful reaction. I think that tells us something about God. God is so perfect that the slightest scintilla of sin causes His wrath to react. He can do no other because He is perfect.

If God simply winked at sin and didn’t respond properly, He would be guilty of violating His own holiness and righteousness. But because He’s holy, He must react and reject all forms of unrighteousness. And through a relationship in Jesus Christ, you can be made spotless in His sight. Trust Him to make you clean today!

GOD IS HOLY AND MUST REJECT ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. SO TRUST JESUS TODAY TO MAKE YOU PERFECT IN HIS EYES.
