Daily Devotion: The Ultimate Recall

Bible Reading: Matthew 12:22-37

Key Verse: Verse 36 - “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Key Words: every idle word

We are told in Revelation 20:12, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

The vast, detailed record being kept by God is beyond anything that we could imagine. Have you ever wondered how these open books mentioned in Revelation 20:12 could contain so much information that man could be judged from them?

I recently read that at Princeton University in New Jersey they are perfecting a mini-chip that can contain thousands of photographs along with the entire Encyclopedia Britannica; and if that is not enough, it can move at over 2,000 revolutions per minute. Fantastic!!

If man, through scientific endeavors, can produce such a wonder for instant recall of information and pictures, how much more an infinite God! Consider the startling truth of Matthew 12:36, “That every idle [empty, useless] word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” The books will be opened and words and deeds will confront the sinner. No one will question the record. The court’s transcripts will be accurate and complete, nor can the verdict be appealed. The only way to escape the ultimate recall is to ask the Savior to save you now, before He becomes your Judge, for “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus,” (Romans 8:1a).

What to do:
✞ If you are not saved, accept Christ today. 
✞ If you are unsure of your salvation, make it sure today. 
✞ Understand that being born again is the most important decision that one will ever make.
