Judgment Day Is What Makes Life Worth Living

Let’s be honest, Judgment Day is out of style. People don’t want to think about it, much less talk about being held accountable to God for their lives. The whole concept is associated with scare tactics from the Dark Ages. Even churches don’t make much mention of it in their worship services.

Regardless of what people might think about Judgment Day at this particular point of world history, it is what gives definition and meaning to our everyday lives. Without an accounting for what we human beings do each day, what would be the lasting meaning of our lives? If there were no Judgment Day, what are we to make of all the people who sacrificed their lives to fight evil? In fact, if God does not judge us, how do we know what is evil?

It is easy in our culture to get so caught up in having fun today, that we become totally distracted and even turned off to the reality that God is concerned with the way we spend our lives. But if God doesn’t care what we do, why should we? And what eternal significance will our lives have?

Judgment Day has suffered a massive public relations attack but that doesn’t make it less a reality. Jesus spoke of it time and time again in the most explicit terms. Make no mistake, according to him, it’s going to happen.

But when Jesus talked about Judgment Day, he never meant it to scare the people who love him. In fact, he said that Day is one to look forward to, to pray for! So why don’t you join us for one of our services this weekend? Rather than spoiling your life, Judgment Day will make it worth living!

Saturday night service: 6:00 pm
