There is one main thing. I need to be clear about what it is. Ignorance, in this regard, is not an excuse. Jesus has made it known to us.

Cheerfully pleasing God is the main thing. That is all there is to it on any given day. We have been given our mission. Jesus knew that his goal was to know what God wanted and to do it.

  • If I want to hit the target, the first thing I need to do is take aim. Is my aim today to please God?
  • Is that my only consideration?

God is God. I will face him one day. Jesus has been given the authority, by his Father, to judge. Will I stand in his mercy, or will I be condemned?

  • I must please God today!
  • That is the only thing that matters.
  • I must be cheerful about it.
  • No grumbling allowed.

So, whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of the Messiah, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. [1]

Judgment Day is the day of God’s final, ultimate judgment on sinful mankind. There are a number of passages in Scripture that refer to the final judgment after death at the end of time when everyone will stand before God, and He will render final judgment on their lives.

Consider this about judgement:

  • Hebrews 9:27 (CSB) — 27 And just as it is appointed for people to die once—and after this, judgment
  • Romans 2:12 (CSB) — 12 For all who sin without the law will also perish without the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law.
  • Psalm 37:38 (CSB) — 38 But transgressors will all be eliminated; the future of the wicked will be destroyed.
  • Proverbs 11:21 (CSB) — 21 Be assured that a wicked person will not go unpunished, but the offspring of the righteous will escape.
