There is a time coming when all of the saved will stand before the Lord to give an account for the deed that we have done. Paul wrote these words to the Corinthians (II Corinthians 5:10) “…we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”
This one verse alone should not only motivate us to daily live our lives to the glory of God (I Cor. 10:31) but also to give Him our very best effort (Colossians 3:23). Someone was said, “We have only one life to live; only one life to give.”
If we are faithful to live our lives in this manner, when that time comes and we stand before Him that Judgment Day, we will hear those words we’ve heard preached so many times, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21).
