Today's Foundations Devotional: Introduction: PART SEVEN: Eternal judgement

Imagine playing a game where you didn’t know all the rules or taking part in a sports competition where you didn’t know the criteria against which you were to be judged. When you came to see your score at the end you would be so disappointed because, you’ll think to yourself, “If only I had known how I was going to be scored I could have done things differently.”

That is the very reason why God has told us in the Bible how we will be judged so that we can live our lives accordingly here on earth. In this final section of your daily study from Derek Prince’ book Foundational Truths for Christian LIving, you will be examining what the Scriptures have to say about the final judgments: how many there are; who will stand in judgment at which point; what the basis of judgment is and much more.

These judgments will take place regardless of any other factors because God has determined it in His Word. People may react differently to learning about the final judgment, but ultimately, if you humble yourself before God and the Bible, foreknowledge of this vitally important subject enables you to live the right life now rather than facing regret later.

Remember that judgment can be a very good thing for those who have received Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection as their own and followed God’s ways during their time on earth. If you do what God requires, judgment will be a glorious day for you, but for those who don’t fit that category it will be a great and terrible day.

John 3:16-19 says :

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Why not take some time right now to pray for your colleagues, friends, neighbours and family that don’t know Jesus as their Saviour yet, for them to accept and know God’s love for them.
