The Day of Judgment: When the Christian Faces God

(Rom 14:10–12) . . . [W]e shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written:

"As I live, says the LORD,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God."

So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.

A sobering word on the necessary appearance of the Christian before the august and holy tribunal of God/the Messiah.

The certain coming of that day should have present far-reaching and humbling effects on the actual Christian in every aspect of his or her daily life.
