1 John 4:16‭-‬17 NLT We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in His love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 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.

There are a lot of people, Christians included, who are scared of judgment day. They think all their good deeds will be compared to their bad deeds. If their bad deeds outweigh their good deeds, they’ll end up in hell.

According to scripture, we new covenant believers no longer need to be afraid of judgment day. Everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior has trusted in God’s love. And our living like Jesus doesn’t mean we live a perfect life, but we’ve made our home in Christ and Christ has made His home in us (Ephesians 3:17-19; 2 Corinthians 5:17).

Believing that Jesus paid for the punishment of our sin makes us right with God (Romans 3:22). Since we’re right with God, we can boldly be in the presence of God on the day of judgment. The only ones who should be afraid on judgment day are those who have not made Jesus Lord and Savior.

I encourage anyone who has not made Jesus Lord and Savior to make Him Lord and Savior. If you know anyone who has not made Jesus Lord and Savior, send this message to them (Romans 10:9).

Everyone, it’s time to make Jesus Lord and Savior.
