“Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.” ~ Revelation 20:11-15
Thought for the day: God will not stand in judgment before you. You, however, will stand in judgment before Him.
To me, this was a very sobering idea and a good reminder of Who is really in charge of my life and everything in the universe. On days that I’m busy telling God how He should be doing His job, it’s best for me to remember that I have plenty to do on my own.
