The Judgment Seat of Christ

635942733559215051202612250_Corrupt-Judges.jpgMy dad used to say “my job as a pastor is to help my people to have a better judgment seat.” Studying for a message, and came across the words below. Somber reminder that one day I will stand before the Judge of all the earth. But a heavier weight is the realization that how I order and lead my family will affect their judgment seat too.

Even now, I am working to make sure that my family is set up for the future. When most people make that statement, they are talking about financial security for their last few years on earth. When I say it, I’m referring to the millions of years that come after that. People accuse me of going overboard in preparing for my first ten million years in eternity. In my opinion, people go overboard in worrying about their last ten years on earth.

 I have imagined what it will be like when (my wife) comes face to face with God. The Bible guarantees this will actually happen. One day, my wife will stand before the Creator and Judge of all things. What a staggering moment that will be! I can’t imagine any of us being ready for the shock of that day, yet Scripture begs us to spend our lives preparing for it.
