We talk about it and we’ve seen movies depicting how someone thinks judgment day will unfold. Many people believe we are near the time when Jesus will return. Recently, two people who do not attend church often told me they believed we are near the end of time. They may be right.
I don’t know when it will happen but I know there is coming a day of judgment. In Romans 2:6, the apostle Paul said regarding judgment day, “He will judge everyone according to what they have done.”
Paul also said in II Corinthians 5:10, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”
So, judgment day is coming. But let’s not speculate on when it’s coming. Let’s focus on being prepared for it’s coming.
On judgment day, our eternal destiny will be known. If we have asked Christ into our hearts to forgive us of our sins, we will spend eternity in heaven. If we haven’t done that, we will spend eternity in hell.
Second, our lives will be judged. Did you live for Christ? Did you use the spiritual gifts God gave you for His glory? Did you use the money God gave you wisely? Did you serve? Those questions will be answered on judgment day.
I encourage you; no, I plead with you, if you have never given your life to Christ, you need to do it. Don’t put that off. Take care of that today.
Second, live for Christ. Get involved in a local church and help reach this generation for Christ.
Judgment day is real. When it happens, it will not be like a movie. Jesus Christ will return to earth in glory and mankind will face judgment.
Make sure you are ready.
