Psalm 1:5

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgement,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.


There will be no back-talking, arguing, or excuse-making going on at the judgement seat. Time will be at an end. All opportunities will have been spent. And those people, who have so pridefully and defiantly stood their ground against God, will bow down to their creator and their tongue will be silent.

C.S. Lewis once said, "There will be two kinds of people in the end: Those that will say to God 'Thy will be done' and those to whom God will say 'Thy will be done.'"

If you are interested, read some thoughts on will.


  1. Is the distinction between the two those who have accepted Christ as their savior or not?

    I hope to hear "Well done, good and faithful servent."

    Can you have salvation and still hear that your will was done, not HIS, or that you were a poor steward of HIS resources?

  2. Here is my opinion:

    In this Psalm we are seeing (with our eyes) two ways of living. God's way, or your own way.

    I am not sure who actually coined this phrase, but I have heard it said in this way, "There are two choices on the shelf: pleasing God or pleasing self."

    And I think that this passage is simply allowing us to also look down the road a bit. Where do these two manners of life end up?

    I don't think that I actually answered your question, but I don't think that I could properly give my opinion on that topic in a comment section of a blog


Please add some additional commentary to this verse. Your input is greatly appreciated.
