Daily Devotional By Archbishop Foley Beach

One Day, You Will Stand Before God in Judgment; and You Will Speak for Yourself

January 26, 2019

MESSAGE SUMMARY: Many of us first believed because of what our parents taught us; but then we heard for ourselves, and we believed. You cannot live on another’s faith in Jesus. You must hear the Gospel for yourself and come to the Lord in your own faith. As Paul tells us in Romans 10:16-17: “But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, ‘Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?’. So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ." You will stand before the Lord alone in judgment – you will speak for yourself with only Jesus to speak for you. Others to whom you minister, such as your children, can her about the Lord and the Gospel from you – for the first time or in reinforcement; but they must hear for themselves and believe for themselves to be saved.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONI affirm that because I am in Jesus Christ, I will entrust to Him my futureI know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.  (From 2 Timothy 1:12).
