Meditation on Judgment

Judgment strikes fear into the heart, and drives it to a greater love of the divine God who sent his only son to save us from His wrath. How foolish we are to forget that we have been saved from so terrible a wrath as that of the Almighty. Do we consider ourselves free of debt because we are saved? Have we forgotten that we are now His servants, indebted forever to yield our lives to His will?

Instead of living in pursuit of the world's pleasures, shouldn't we be pursuing Him? Do we owe the world? I think not! Therefore, remember the coming judgment and live in fear of Him that is able to destroy your soul (Matthew 10:28). If you have been saved from wrath then follow your Savior. If, however, your soul is bound to the world and you do not know the one true God, then repent before Him of your sin and He will save you.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
