1 John 4:17 NLT 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.

Believers were never meant to be afraid of Judgment Day. Hollywood and people have made Judgment Day to be this humongous spectacle where all our sins are on display and if our bad outweighs our good, we’re going to hell.

For believers, Judgment Day is a day where we can confidently approach our Father because we lived like Jesus. That doesn’t mean we lived perfectly, but in context of this scripture, it means we lived in God and allowed God to live in us. It means we trusted in His love (v. 16). How do we trust in His love? By believing that He sent His Son to take away the sins of the world (v. 9-10).

Judgment Day has nothing to do with how good we’ve been, how many acts of kindness we’ve displayed, or how much we’ve given away. It’s a day where we can boldly say we’ve trusted in His love by accepting the sacrifice for sin (Jesus).
