27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment
My brother Terry died his one time last Wednesday (12/12) around 3 am.
My wife's grandfather, Roland, died his one time this evening (12/18) around 7:30 pm.
Life is short and "after that comes judgment."
Only in Jesus is that judgment rendered "innocent, blameless, forgiven."
Without Jesus that judgment can only be rendered "guilty."
No one is good enough to outgrow their need for Jesus.
No one is bad enough to outrun the reach of Jesus.
If you are reading this, know that you too will die.
And sooner than you think.
What would the judgment be for you if you died after reading this post?
1 John 5:10-13
10 Whoever believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has borne concerning his Son. 11 And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.
