In God’s Courtroom


100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #3

TEXT: Galatians 2:16

The Bible says that “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” This verse simply means that one day you will die, and that after death, you will face God. Have you ever wondered what that face-to-face meeting with God will be like? Well, the Bible calls it a judgment. So, let’s use our sanctified imaginations to imagine ourselves in God’s courtroom with God as the judge.

No doubt, after you die, you will want to go to Heaven. God wants you to go to Heaven as well but after you die the Bible tells us that you will face God. What would that meeting be like? Perhaps, one of God’s angels will open a book which will have your name in it and a list of your sins underneath. The Bible tells us that “all have sinned”, so many names and many sins will be listed in the book. Your sins are named out to you — every lie, every lustful glance, every hateful word. Even the things you thought were small and insignificant will loom large in God’s courtroom. You begin to feel hopeless because you know that with your sins, you could not be allowed into Heaven.
