Share this conversation starter with your LDS friend:

I’ve been reading through the Book of Acts and was struck this week by how Paul shared the gospel with the Roman governor Felix. It says he “discoursed on righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come” (24:25). I’ve noted his letters in the New Testament follow that very same pattern: being on the right side of the law with God is followed by living for God and then judgment. 

It got me thinking about how vital that order is. If the order was changed, it would lead to a completely different outcome. For example, if I started with self-control and relied on my own efforts to gain God’s favor, I’d never be sure I had it. If I was honest, I would be quite certain I didn’t. Then, knowing I wasn’t right with God, facing judgment would be terrifying. 

But, taken in the biblical order, if I trust that Christ as our substitute lived perfectly in our place and took the punishment we deserved, I start from the position of knowing I’m right with God. Then, as I think about living a self-controlled life, it’s not out of duty or obligation to gain God’s favor but done out of thanks because I know I already have it. Knowing you’re already good with God completely transforms how we look at judgment.  

I noticed that when Felix heard Paul’s words, he was afraid. It’s clear he was still taking things in the wrong order and was terrified about judgment. How about you? Have you ever been concerned about judgment day? Go back to the biblical order to transform those fears into confidence!
