So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.
We are given a sobering warning in Romans 14. We will all come under the judgement of God one day. No one will escape.
Everyone who refuses to trust and believe in Christ will be separated from God’s goodness, mercy, and grace forever. The lake of fire is their ultimate destination. (Revelation 20:15) Conversely, all who trust in Christ are saved and justified forever. Their eternal destiny is Heaven. (John 14:1-6)
Christians will also give an account of our lives. Living with this reality ought to affect how we think, talk, and act. In light of this truth, let us consider three things today.
1) Our thinking needs to be aligned with God’s Word. Christians ought to study the Scriptures each day so that our thinking will be correct and Godly. Our minds need renewal day by day. (Romans 12:1-2) Renewal takes place when we study the Bible each day.
2) We should be very careful in choosing our words. Christ warned us that we will give an account for “every idle word.” (Matthew 12:36) Words are easily spoken and impossible to take back. Choose your words wisely, Believer.
3) Let us make every effort to make sure that our actions are holy and Godly. Jesus is our example each day. Christians, let us imitate Christ in our daily lives. It will be to our benefit to do so.
God bless you!
