There is a judgement coming! In Acts 17:30b-31, God “commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
This assurance is summed up in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ for our sins. This is known as the good news or gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). In Romans 6:23, scripture tells us that we have earned death through our sins. It also tells us that the “gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Like all gifts, it is our choice of whether to accept His gift in His way. Jesus states in John 14:6, ” “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
