Key Verse: Verse 12 - "So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God."
Key Words: So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God
Paul was pointing out to these Roman Christians that everyone must give an account to God. Even those who were judging others would one day bow and be judged. For me, just to think of standing before Jesus is a humbling thing. It reminds me of an illustration I read taken from The King’s Business.
“A number of prominent literary men were assembled in a room in London. The conversation veered to a discussion of some of the great men of the past. One man asked, ‘Gentlemen, what would we do if suddenly Milton entered the room?’ ‘Ah,’ replied another, ‘we would give him a standing ovation.’ ‘And,’ said another, ‘if Shakespeare entered?’ ‘We would rise and crown him master of the literary world.’ And another said, ‘If Jesus entered, what would we do?’ ‘I think,’ said Charles Lamb amid an intense silence, ‘we would fall on our faces!’”
Certainly you must agree with me that, to stand before Jesus will be a humbling experience; for certainly He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Friend, have you ever humbled yourself before Jesus and asked Him to be your Savior? Would you do so today?
He who bows before Jesus as his Savior need not worry about bowing before Him as his judge at the Great White Throne.
What to do:
✞ It’s wise to remember that one day we will all bow before God.
