Are You Ready For Judgement Day?
If you asked 100 people, "are you ready for judgement day?", how many do you think would answer affirmatively? How would you answer? What is the basis for your answer? Remember, no one can answer this question for you. And if you happen to be an atheist, this question is for you: Have you ever considered the possibility that you're wrong about your opinion that there is no God?
Imagine this scenario: You're dead. In front of you is Jesus. He doesn't say anything. He pushes a button and a movie screen turns on. You are the star of the movie. The first scene is you as a baby. Your entire life is played before your eyes. Everything you did, right up until the moment you died is in the movie. The way you treated others is replayed on the movie screen. At the end of the movie, Jesus asks you, "would you mind evaluating your life?"
What kind of movie did you see? Was it a love story? How did you interact with everyone else?
If you saw a horror flick or if the movie you watched was lackluster, here's some good news for you -- you're not dead. You may not win any Academy Awards for your performance in this world, however, if you believe in the Director and follow Him, when judgement day comes, He will introduce you to His Father, the One who wrote the original screen play for your life. Today is a good day to get familiar with the script. The other actors around you are here to help you. It's a good idea to love them, even when they mistreat you or hurt you. Your job is to give the performance of your life. The only critic who counts is Jesus.
