With Liberty and Justice for All!

By

Yesterday My wife and I were sitting in an attorney’s office waiting to sign our Last Will and Testament. I know it sounds somber, but we wanted to insure that in the event of our deaths, everything would be in order for the people we love most, our children. As we sat in the attorney’s library awaiting his return, I was scanning the book shelves that lined the walls. They were filled with volume after volume of legal reference books. A lot of them had to do with case files of cases that had been tried down through the years. These “precedents” are important to lawyers in trying their cases.

I begin to think of how the decisions that are made in courts around the country day after day, rest upon decisions that a Judge of higher authority had made at some previous point of time. This gave rise to an intoxicating thought.

ALL FUTURE DECISIONS OF THE COURT ARE TO REST ON THE PAST DECISIONS OF THE COURT.

A person is to be tried with a past decision in view. Sometimes there are arguments about the rightness of a past decision and a superior judge will overturn it. It then is usually appealed all the way to the Supreme Court which ultimately can affirm the original verdict or establish a new precedent.

Of course your preacher brain knows where I am going with this concerning the past verdict that was rendered at the Cross by the Judge of the Universe. There are so many applications here. I have to remind myself the purpose of this site is to provide snippets and seeds that can become sermons.

So….water it with your own creativity and Bible knowledge and watch it grow. Oh, by the way, remember what I titled this post. That is another diving board you can use to spring off into another sea of application.  Blessings!

We LOVE you so.. how about liking us on Facebook?..
