Romans 14:12 “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
This is one of the most sobering verses in all of scripture. We are truly accountable unto God! We are all going to stand before God and give an account of our lives to him. God will hold nothing back and will not overlook one detail. It is a hard thing to fathom the scope of this verse. However; we must picture ourselves underneath the microscope of God’s eye. He sees more than our actions. He sees our intentions, he sees our thoughts, and he sees our attitudes. Not only will God see these things, we will have to give an account of them. This means we are going to literally have to explain ourselves before the God of all Glory…shaking yet? I am!
We are not going to have any excuses, we are not going to be able to justify ourselves, so therefore, we will be completely exposed by the Holiness of God. I have also have no doubt we are not going to be able to pass blame either.
Yes, that means we will not be getting away with the phrase “we are all sinners”. The reason is because we will be standing before someone that is sinless.
I think the major principle the Lord is setting before us today is that we are all going to be held accountable. We will have no excuses, we will be truly exposed!
Today’s Challenge: What kind of explanation will you have while standing before the Lord!
