Judgment Day Will Be A Great Day For You
‘In this world we are like Jesus.’ 1 John 4:17 NIV
Will you get into Heaven because you are worthy? No, you’ll get there because Jesus, the One in Whom you’ve placed your trust, is worthy! ‘As we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the Day of Judgment, but we can face Him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love.’ (1 John 4:17–18 NLT)
On the Day of Judgment earthly wealth won’t matter. Physical beauty won’t be factored in. Fame will be forgotten. You might stand next to Napoleon or Julius Caesar, but you won’t be asking them about Waterloo or Brutus. All eyes will be on Jesus. Those who ignored Him will hear the words, ‘Depart from Me.’ (Matthew 25:41 KJV) But for those who accept Him as their Lord and Saviour there need be no fear. ‘We can face Him with confidence because we live like Christ here in this world.’
Think about that! God sees you the way He sees Christ—worthy and accepted. And since you’re ‘in Christ’ you can view Judgment Day the way He does—with confidence. Does Christ fear judgment? No, a sinless soul needn’t. Does He fear death? No, the giver of life wouldn’t. So should we who are ‘in Christ’ fear judgment or death? Not at all: ‘In this world we are like Jesus.’ So Judgment Day will be a great day for you and me b6 God’s grace and mercy!
We serve Love! And Love sees into the hearts of each of us. An easy thing to understand when you are standing as you ought to stand. Yes, there will be many ‘mistakee’ made, we are viewed by Love, so the essence is to rise up in Him if we fall. We have a hand to hold on to. An essence to guide us.
I will ask a quick question; “what have we been given that makes it so much easier to stand in God’s awesome grace?” A grace that has no earthly or ‘other worldly’ comparison? What appeared above the heads of those who locked themselves away on the day of Pentecost?
Yes, we have a power, a force within us that cannot be put into definition. We have The Holy Spirit. Sent after Jesus’ left. Hallelujah! We have within us what we habe been promised- A guide, a comforter, a power beyond what we have ever experienced. You are unique! Have and do you realize that?.
As we go through this day and beyond; we Have much to be grateful for! Did you say good day and thank You to The Holy Trinity as of yet this morning? Have an awesome day in Him.
