That Fateful Day When I Stood Before Jesus Christ to Be Judged


When it comes to judging others, how easy is it to judge harshly or without a full picture of what is happening in that person's life? Would we ever want someone to judge us like that?

While Jesus Christ is the Great and Eternal Judge of the quick and the dead, I wonder how much judging will actually be done by Him. What if all the judging has already been done by you?

As each anxious person inched closer and closer to their judgment, they recognized the Savior standing brilliantly in radiant white.
