Ready Or Not: Naughty or Nice

It sure is easy for what is urgent to crowd out what is important. That’s never truer than this time of year. Even as we urgently get ready for Christmas, we also want to make sure we are prepared for what is important: Christ's second coming. This week we focus on the verdict that each of us will hear on the day of judgment. Unlike our judgments, which can be skewed by emotion, bias, or lack of information, Christ's judgment will be perfectly just. While this is a frightening fact to those who do not know him, God'speople take comfort in the fact that the one who loved them enough to suffer and die for them will also decide their eternal fate.
