One of the strangest request for help I have ever received occurred one summer day in Gadsden, Alabama. Two men drove up and asked for help with gasoline. I asked them where they were headed. They said, “Jackson, Mississippi.” They had left from Tupelo, Mississippi, traveled to Memphis then to Nashville, then to Atlanta and from Atlanta had come to Gadsden. I told them, “Fellas, you don’t need help with gasoline, you need a road map.”
It’s good to know where you are going and to have some idea of how to get there.
Do you know where you are going?
God tells us. “It is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,”
(Hebrews 9:27 NAU)
Paul tells the people of Athens this about God. “Because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31 NAU)
What will we be judged by? “He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. (John 12:48 NAU)
We all have an appointment with God. We will each stand before Him. We will be judged by Jesus and the words He has spoken.
Don’t you think that is an important thing to know and remember?
