May 12, 2020. Day 133: Authority to execute judgment.

“To live is Christ” means that Jesus as our judge is good news! In him, our judgment day has already occurred. We have already passed through the fires of judgment day in our dying with him on the cross. And, in him, we have already passed from death into life by our resurrection with him. Now, in Christ’s eternal forgiveness, we can live free from the fear of all judgment. And we can live free from the need to judge all others. Jesus is the judge. Not you. Not me. And that too is good news.
