Face to Face with God
by Charles R. Swindoll
God will bring every act to judgment,
everything which is hidden,
whether it is good or evil.
If God says that He will bring every act to judgment . . . I know He will. I don't know His method and frankly, that doesn't bother me. What ought to bother us is that He will do it!
Somehow in God's own timing and in God's own way, He will cause there to be a replay of our lives.
It makes a lot of sense to me that the One who made us has every right to hold us accountable.
We cannot live the life of an irresponsible playboy and get away with it. We aren't free to run wild and wink in God's direction, thinking that, no matter what, the big Teddy Bear in the sky will yawn, pat us on the head, and say, "Everything is going to be just fine." No, it doesn't work like that.
Our ragged-edge journey is headed for a sudden stop. And all alone, standing face to face with God in that epochal moment, we will give an account of the life we have lived.
Sober, serious thought!
