2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive his recompense in the body, according to what he has done, whether it was good or bad.
The call today is to look by faith beyond what we see with the natural eyes for all we see in the natural is temporary and what is seen in the realm of God’s Spirit is eternal.
The Apostle Paul reminds us in this text that the most important task in life is pleasing God in all we do. He also reminds us that we ALL shall stand before Christ judgment seat.
At Christ first coming to earth He came as “SAVIOR” of the world but at the second coming He is coming as the “JUDGE” we will ALL stand before to give an account of our lives. This day there will be no plea bargains nor any blame game excuses accepted.
The urgency in this text is to “PLEASE GOD” and put Him “FIRST” in our lives. Seek ye first the rule and reign of Christ on the throne of our hearts.
One day every man, woman, boy and girl will stand before Christ and either receive our reward or judgment for what we ALL have done individually in these bodies.
Yes, the seeds we have sown in this life, be it good or evil, will be known at the end time harvest as we stand before Christ and they are revealed.
Remember, man looks at the outer but God searches the heart of man.
What is the driving force in your heart? Love or hate? Reconciliation or division? Peace or strife?
How will you stand on that day? To be rewarded or to be judged? This is a question we ALL must ponder now and if changes are needed in our life, now is the time to make them while we are yet alive for on the day of “accountability” we will not be able to redo anything.
God calls and is still calling us all individually to salvation by grace through faith. God is not seeking perfection, but obedience and faithfulness.
The question to be answered is “will we answer the call” to life eternal with Christ? Or, will we choose to be separated from Him in eternity because we chose not to answer but instead disregard, deny, ignore and reject His call?
Today is the day to embrace God’s design for life and living in Ephesians 5:13-17 But the light will show what these things are really like. 14 Light shows up everything, just as the Scriptures say, “Wake up from your sleep and rise from death. Then Christ will shine on you.” 15 Act like people with good sense and not like fools. 16 These are evil times, so make every minute count. 17 Don’t be stupid. Instead, find out what the Lord wants you to do.
Today is the day to avoid living according to the world system. Romans 12:2 Don’t be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.
What preparations are you now making on earth for your unavoidable appointment date with Jesus at His judgment seat?
The time to get right with God is now!
Eternity is a destination that is unavoidable for us ALL. How we will spend it can only be determined by our life living now.
CHRIST IS OUR ONLY LIVING HOPE! GRAB AHOLD OF HIM ON TODAY!
