Judgment Day Will Be A Great Day For You

Judgment Day Will Be A Great Day For You

1Jn 4:17 TM     “Our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s.”

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” (vv. 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” (Mt 25:41). But for those who accept Him as their Lord and Savior 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: “Our standing in the world is identical with Christ’s.” So judgment day will be a great day for you!
