“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.” 2 Corinthians 5:10 (ESV)

What you do with Christ during your brief stay on planet earth will determine whether you spend eternity in heaven or hell. Your response to God’s offer of salvation is the deciding factor to your eternal destination. As Bruce Wilkinson says, “Your belief determines where you will spend eternity; your behavior determines how you will spend eternity.”

  • “Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God.” Rom. 14:10 (ESV)
  • “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Phil. 2:9-11 (ESV) 

Every human being will stand before God to give an account for his or her life. Every person will bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! Those who reject God’s offer of salvation while living on earth will still bow and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, but it will be eternally too late. Believers will go to the Judgment Seat of Christ to receive reward and heaven while unbelievers will go to the White Throne Judgment (Rev. 20:11-15) to receive punishment and hell.

Live circumspectly! Live in full awareness of God’s holiness, purity, and justice! Take as many people with you to heaven as you possibly can in full surrender to the Spirit’s control. Make the most of every opportunity!

“So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Romans 14:12 (NIV)

God sees every moment of your life. God will hear every word you speak today. Each act of kindness will not go unnoticed. Your thoughts, your motives, and your attitude will not escape His attention. God is all knowing and all seeing. Has it ever occurred to you that nothing ever occurs to God? Nothing catches God by surprise.

One day you will stand before God to give an account for your life. As a follower of Christ, your sins have been forgiven. The penalty for your sin debt has been paid in full. Jesus took your sin upon Himself and received the full wrath of God for your sin. As a believer, you will not stand before God to determine your eternal destiny. Where you spend eternity is solidified by your belief in the atoning work of Christ on the cross. Salvation is not in question.

When you stand before God, you will give an account for how you invested the life God has given you. You are a steward of the blessings and opportunities God gives you. What have you done with all that God has entrusted to your care? Have you been faithful to join God in His redemptive activity? Have you employed your spiritual gifts in service to God through His local church?

Every moment matters to God; so make every moment count. Don’t squander your life. Live in light of standing before God one day to give an account. Make decisions based on what God has said in His word and what God will say when you stand before Him.

Appearing Before the Judgment Seat

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” 2 Cor 5:10 (NIV)

Everyone will live forever somewhere.

What you do with Christ during your brief stay on planet earth will determine whether you spend eternity in heaven or hell. Your response to God’s offer of salvation is the deciding factor to your eternal destination. As Bruce Wilkinson says, “Your belief determines where you will spend eternity; your behavior determines how you will spend eternity.”
