Saturday 16th April 2022 Devotion
Scripture:- Revelation 20:10-15
Topic:- The White Throne Judgement
A young lady committed a crime and she was sent to Court.
The punishment for the crime was life imprisonment.
She shed tears for help but no one was available for help.
When the case was called in court she started weeping.
Her family and friends who accompanied her started weeping but there was no hope.
But something happened. But as soon as the young lady stepped into the Witness Box, a man stood up and the Courtroom and identified himself as her Lawyer.
Suddenly, the entire Courtroom went silent. Everyone looked at Him. He was noble and gentle.
He stood up and interceded on behalf of the young lady.
The case was difficult, yet He used all His strength, energy, and resources to fight on behalf of the woman.
After a long legal battle between the man and the accusers, the lady was set free.
The lady fell before the man and asked “WHO ARE YOU?”
The next day the lady deliberately committed another crime and was sent to the same Court.
As soon as she entered the Courtroom, she saw the man who interceded for her the previous day on the Judgement seat.
He was no longer a Lawyer, but a Judge.
With a smile on her face, the lady said “I have come again.”
The man lifted his head and said, Yesterday I was a Lawyer, so I fought for you, even when you were guilty.
But today I am a Judge and my judgment must be fair.
With tears in the lady’s eyes, she asked for the second time. “WHO ARE YOU?”
And the man replied, “Yesterday, I was your SAVIOUR. But Now I AM Your JUDGE.”
Today Christ Jesus is our Lawyer and Redeemer, but a day is coming when He will give a fair judgment to everyone.
How prepared are you to stand before His Judgment Seat?
Oh Lord God, help me not to misuse Your grace in vain, in the name of Jesus Christ.
