1 Peter 1:17
17 And <kai> if <ei> ye call on
<epikaleomai> the Father <pater>, who <ho> without respect of
persons <aprosopoleptos> judgeth <krino> according to <kata>
every man's <hekastos> work <ergon>, pass <anastrepho> the time
<chronos> of your <humon> sojourning <paroikia> here in
<en> fear <phobos>:KJV-Interlinear
17 And if you address as Father
the One who impartially judges according to each man's work, conduct yourselves
in fear during the time of your stay upon earth; NASB
If you are a true Christian,
then you will honor God the Father as a child honors their parent, as a wife
honors her husband, as one who is subordinate in any capacity, honors any authorized
and proper authority.
Authority is established
by God.God invented it, defined it, and
established it as a part of the principles, which guide and stabilize
If you were to
disregard the rules of the road, then there would be chaos on the streets.If you were to disregard the rights of others,
then there would be no trust, no privacy, nothing of value in ones life.
If you regard God
with any kind of respect at all, then you will honor Him, not only in words,
but in deeds.You will obey His mandates.
God is not a respecter
of persons.He has no respect whatsoever
for who or what you are.
Man is dust and
nothing more.Man is a living soul and
nothing more.Man has accomplished
nothing on his own, nor will he ever accomplish anything significant, ever.
If you have a talent,
then it came from God.If you have an
ability, then it came from God.If you
have looks, then they came from God.If you
have any intelligence at all, it came from God.Everything about you came from God.
God placed you in
this world at His convenience, not at your command. God will remove you from
this world at His convenience, and without regard to your permission.
God recognizes that
which is holy as He is holy, that which is perfect as He is perfect.He detests anything and everything that is
tainted and evil.
And, your life in
this world, regardless of what you think of yourself, will be evaluated at the
end of your life in this world.So you
have perhaps a few decades to prepare yourself for that evaluation.
At the proper time,
and again, at Gods convenience, we will all be called to stand before Him.God gave us all, time, doctrine and volition,
and with those three things we have all that we need in order to prepare
ourselves for our ultimate and final evaluation.
And what will our
evaluation be concerned with?
Our fear, our
respect, our honor of God, of His word, of His plan, of His doctrine, of all
the principles and mandates which He has set before us.And, the manner with which we have applied
these things (Gods truth) and formed the conduct of our life, around them.These things will determine the outcome of
God has left us all
with tremendous promises and blessings in time and in eternity.Those blessings amount to things of
phenomenal value.To whom God gives much
(blessings), God expects much (obedience to His Word).
