For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. It is written: ‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’ So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.
Romans 14 verses 10-12
Lots of us think that there’s a God – or at least that there’s ‘something bigger than us out there’. But this verse says we’ll have to stand before him and give an account of ourselves – that’s something quite different. God tells us about it so that it doesn’t come as a surprise, there’s still time to get ready. The only way to be safe on that day is to be in his good books – you can have your name written in the book of life by trusting in Jesus, but more about that in another song.
