Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. – Rom. 11:22

God is both good and severe. He is good to those who “continue in His goodness.” But He is severe to those who “fall.” So, the choice is yours: will you continue in His goodness? Will you live your life by His Word, and listen to His voice, so that you can experience His goodness in your life?

You don’t have to fall. You don’t have to be cut off! You don’t have to expose yourself to the “severity of God.” Make a decision to follow Him with all your heart. Continue in His goodness and stay connected to Him all the days of your life!

The choice is yours. Will you align yourself to receive God’s goodness?


Father, thank You for being just! Thank You for being good to those who continue in Your goodness, and severe to those who do not. I want to be among the elect who live my life according to Your Word. Help me to align my life with Your promise, in Jesus’ name!
