Judgement Day and our Judge

Everyone will give an account of their life to Jesus, but those who have trusted in Him as their savior won’t be condemned.

John 5:22-24

Anyone who’s been in a courtroom knows the atmosphere of authority and fear that surrounds the judge as he or she takes a seat. One day, everyone will face the ultimate Judge — the Lord Jesus Christ (Heb 9:27). When we approach Him, we’ll be standing before the One who is perfectly righteous and just. He is impartial and will make decisions with all wisdom and complete knowledge. His standard for justice is truth, not opinion.

Jesus, who’s been given this job by His heavenly Father, is perfect for the position: He can sympathize with our weaknesses and understands our temptations because He, too, has suffered and been tempted — yet never sinned (Heb. 4:15).

The Bible teaches that believers won’t be condemned on the day of judgment, however they will each stand before Christ to give an account of their life (Rom. 14:10-12). His purpose isn’t to punish but to evaluate and reward our good works.

What comfort we have in knowing that our Judge is also our Savior, who loved us enough to die for us. Christ is for us, not against us. This should motivate us to love and live for Jesus who delivers us from the fear of punishment (1 John 4:16-18).
