A Ticket to Heaven Is Not an Exemption from Judgment

Just because everyone, including you, is going to heaven (for more, see yesterday’s post or Everyone Is Going to Heaven ) doesn’t mean you aren’t being judged for the way you live your life.  In fact, you have been experiencing judgment as you have lived and there will be a final accounting when you enter the next life.  Therefore, it behooves you to live as righteously as you know how. 

For real improvement in righteousness, stop thinking about how you look to other people and concern yourself only with how you look to God.  He sees all your deeds and hears all your words.  People only see and hear a portion of these.  Moreover, He sees every thought you have – which people cannot see at all.  This is where to put your attention.
