Jesus Stands by You
Here's a story that Nick Vujicic (pronounced VOO-yee-cheech) told when he gave a message in Havre, France.
He said that he imagined himself at the judgment, after his death. He saw himself there, in front of God, the Judge, and his accusers were there as well, listing all his sins: “Oh God, Nick Vujicic is a sinner. And he did ALL this sin. He sinned all of his life. He doesn’t deserve heaven. He doesn’t deserve eternal life. He is a sinner. He belongs in hell.”
And then, Nick says he saw Jesus standing by him, and He said to God, “Yes, Father, Nick was a sinner. But at age 15, he entrusted his life to You. He believed You sent Me down to die for his sins, and he asked Me for forgiveness of sins. And he’s been living, Father, for Your will, and he’s been telling the world about Me. He is forgiven, and I died for all that sin, because he believed. He’s ours.” And God turns to Nick and says to him, “Welcome home!”
You notice that Jesus stands by Nick. Yes, Jesus is right beside us. He is right beside you and even in heaven, He will again stand at your side to defend you when your accusers start to speak.
Because you believe in Jesus, because you’ve placed your faith in Him and in His work on the cross for you, one day, you will hear God the Father say to you, “Welcome home.” Oh what a joy that will be!
