5/12 Confidence on the Day of Judgment

1 John 4:17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.

Do not take this for granted. Do not think he wouldn’t do it. He is true to his word and if he said he will punish for sin. He will! This being said, appreciate what he has given to you who believe and as a result live in love.

We are like Christ by faith, by obedience to love, and by the Spirit that he gave that lives in you. In spite of the truth of your former rebellion, through these, God has given you an undeserved gift and reprieve from eternal damnation. You can confidently walk knowing, as he is true to his name and word, this gift is irrevocable.

Get on with living like Christ because of the freedom given. Never look back. Race forward completing his task to love the world and bring the offer of eternal life. It is all sewed up for you. You are on your way to Heaven. Smile at death and work to take as many with you as possible.
