Where Will You Stand?

You know how you say X and your friend says, “No, it’s not X, it’s Y!” and then you both find out that it’s X. Then you look at your friend and he says, “Ok, yeah, you were right” and you smile inside because you were right (this time). And you get a nice feeling, because it’s nice to be proven right.

Like when your team wins the game, and your friend is rooting for the other side. That feeling of victory, that feeling of “I’m glad I picked the right side.”

Well, at the end of the world, as a person who is trusting in Jesus Christ for salvation, I will be standing by the Great White Throne of God as He judges the unsaved of the world. All the people I know that did not trust Christ will stand before Him, and they will be judged. Since they did not trust in the sacrifice of Christ on their behalf, they will be judged on their ability to be sinlessly perfect. Not one of them will be accepted. They will have no excuse, and they will spend the rest of time (that does not end) suffering in the Lake of Fire.

In that moment, I will not feel victorious. I will not feel good about being right. I will only feel sadness for those who did not believe.

So I encourage you all: get a Bible. Read it. Tell me how Jesus Christ is not the Son of God and why He can’t save you from the just penalty for your sin. Let’s have the discussion, because I don’t want to stand there on Judgment Day and look at you, knowing that we never talked about it.

Bibles are free now. Just go to www.biblia.com or www.biblegateway.com and you can read the whole thing. I recommend starting with the Gospel of John.

Where will you stand?
