Our life works: We will be accountable to God

On the Day of Judgement, all people will have to report on their lives to God.

On that Day, God will ask for a report about how we lived on Earth.

I know that many people don’t believe what I am writing and they assume that I am portraying God as some form of a dark character. On the contrary, God is not a promoter of darkness and we should be aware of the Judgment Day because such awareness can also help in thinking consciously about the way we live.

And I deeply know that many churchgoers still don’t believe in the existence of Judgement Day.

This is what the Bible says:

“For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.” (Ecclesiastes 12:14)

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10)

“So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” (Romans 14:12)

As you can read from the above passages, there will be a Judgment. One of the reasons why many church goers don’t believe in such an event is because they barely read the Bible. Therefore, they get knowledge from people and preachers who don’t refer to the Bible.

I always encourage preachers to always open their Bibles when preaching.

For years and decades, there has a been a false teaching making the rounds in the church and the false teaching states the following: “God expects nothing from us”

If God expects nothing from us, then why is He telling us to share the Gospel to all the Nations of the world? (ref. Matthew 28:19).

If God expects nothing from us, then why , in the parable of the talents, was the lazy servant thrown and cast out (ref. Matthew 25:14-30) ?

If God expects nothing from us, then why does He want us to account for our lives on Judgement Day?

The belief and false teaching that claim that “ God expects nothing from us” has turned many Christians into lazy and complacent people. This is one of the reasons why many Christians are not living their God given purpose.

Let me show you a verse that will seem controversial for many people out there and it is found in Ephesians 2:10 and it reads:

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

I suggest that you read Ephesians 2:10 in at least 5 different Bible versions, especially if you do not believe what I am writing. I know that it is hard for many to let Ephesians 2:10 sink in their hearts but it would be better that you understand this verse now because the Lord is coming soon.

Let’s be clear about one thing: “ we are saved by Grace through faith” (ref. Ephesians 2:8). The works that the Bible refers to in Ephesians 2:10 are the works that make up our purpose on Earth.

Let’s think about something: “ Do you really think that God sent you on Earth just to breathe the air and for no reason?” It does not make sense. This is why I strongly believe that Ephesians 2:10 is the truth about life.

As we are moving towards dangerous times, I have two things to tell you:

If you are living the works that God has prepared for you, then Glory to God.

If you are not living in the works that God has prepared for you, then start making changes that will help you live the destiny that God has for you. That way, you will have a good report to give to God.
