1 John 4:17 And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world.

When we hear, “on the day of judgment” some of us get afraid. We think of a big God looking over our entire life judging us for whatever we’ve done wrong. That’s totally not the case.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! When God sees believers, He sees us in Christ.

Judgment day is not a day where He looks at our works. If we did so many good things, we’re going to heaven, but if our bad things outweighs our good, we’re going to hell. No number of good things we do can make us righteous and send us to heaven (Ephesians 2:8-9). It’s only through Jesus that we’re righteous (Romans 3:22; 4:5).

Since we’re in Christ, we can and should be confident on judgment day. The only people who should be afraid are people who rejected Jesus as Lord all their lives. So, don’t look at judgment day as this big scary event, wondering if you’re going to hell or not. Be confident and know because of the sacrifice of Jesus and our acceptance of that sacrifice, we have no reason to fear.
