What’s Your Excuse?

Description

Someday the Judge will ask you why you fell short of His glory.

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God.

Romans 5:1-2
 

“What’s your excuse?” the indignant boss demands when the project deadline is missed. Someday the Judge will ask you why you fell short of His glory. The besieged employee tells the boss she had to attend her dying mother, and is justified in the eyes of the merciful supervisor. At the Judgment Seat, all we need reply is “Jesus,” and we are instantly justified. A pastor I know preached the funeral of an evil man who had accepted Christ right before death. The pastor focused on Christ’s mercy. “What you said,” a man told him later, “is that Jesus was his excuse.”
