You are Accountable

Last time we learned about how we often put a target on our backs when it comes to the judgement of God.  We may do things that we know are wrong and yet somehow think we are special because we are His chosen people. We begin to lose humility and become quite arrogant in the fact that we belong to Him.

But did you know that God repeatedly challenges the fact of us thinking that we are special. Israel believed that because they were the chosen people of God that they were special because of their obedience to God and therefore would avoid judgment. They thought judgment would happen to the world, but the chosen people of God would be spared. However, God tried from the beginning to warn the people against this kind of foolish thinking.
