Unlimited: God Will Judge People’s Secrets
May 24, 2022 137
This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares (Romans 2:16).
There are no secrets from God. Everything that you consider a secret will be revealed and judged by God on judgment day.
Paul also states that on that day of judgment, the judge will be Jesus Christ himself.
There are no secrets from God.
Some people have a mistaken view of the judgment, in which they conceive God the Father being the stern and unrelenting judge, while Jesus as our advocate pleads our case before the Father, as if trying to melt his heart and convince him to forgive and save us. What a horrific and toxic view of God. In fact, it is as Jesus himself said,
the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son (John 5:22).
In fact, the apostle Paul says here that the Gospel which he preaches includes the reality that Jesus Christ himself is our judge. As you know, the word “Gospel” means “Good News,” and this is indeed encouraging and wonderful news! The one who gave his life for you is the one who is your judge! How could anyone who accepts such a Saviour ever be lost?
Imagine the judgment in your mind. Who is the judge? What is his attitude toward you? Challenge yourself: How correct is your understanding of the judgment?
