The One True Judge

The One True Judge


Today in 2016, the number one barrier we have to faith in
Jesus is that we insist on being
the self-authenticating masters of who we are. Therefore, we believe that we get to decide what is true and real about the rest of the
world. Deep down we believe
we are the only ones who may appropriately make a judgement about who we are
and what we do. But the reality is this – there is a truth about you
that exists independently of you. God has the authority. He is the authoritative figure
and He has every right to judge the world. Every sinful thought, every sinful action,
every sinful attitude is going to be judged. And yet He doesn’t. Instead, He gives the authority,
He gives the task of judgement to Jesus. So that Jesus would get honor. So what is the truth about Jesus? He is the only way to God. He is the only way to eternal life,
and one day, in the end, He is going to be the final judge of all things. We can’t save ourselves
and so the response is to hear the Gospel, to believe in Jesus
so that He will give us eternal life, and give us His imputed righteousness.
