Have you ever thought about what will happen on judgment day? For example, if God were to ask you, “Why should I let you live eternally with me?” what would you say?
I ask because I was recently reading about the jailer of Philippi in Acts 16. After nearly facing earthly death, he realized he was even more afraid about his spiritual and eternal destination: “What must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30).
In that moment of crisis where it mattered most, he heard one of the clearest messages in the Bible: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). The simplicity is startling. He was looking for a list of what he must do and instead he’s told to simply trust in what Jesus has done.
That has completely changed the way I look at judgment day. If it was about showing God all I have done, I’d have to show him both the good and the bad; that would be terrifying! But simply standing on Jesus’ perfect record for me provides confidence and the certainty that I will live eternally with Heavenly Father.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). In what ways does that change the way you look at judgment day?
