Jesus is Lord – Rom 14:11-12
Vs 11 – Paul then quotes, Isaiah 45:23 about how one day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess the Lord. All creation will have to give an account. I look forward to the day when satan will be brought before the Lord and will have to confess his obedience to the Lord. He will say, “Jesus is Lord.” We will be there to see it. All rebels no matter who they are will give an account and be judged accordingly. It is a terrible thing to fall in the hands of an angry and just God. That is why we should be so grateful for the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses us from all sin.
Vs 12 – Each one of us will have to give an account of ourselves to God. For the nonbeliever it will have to do with sin. For the believer we will be judged on love, faithfulness, obedience, faith, how we minister to others on His behalf, integrity, morality, motives and attitudes. All will be judged but not all are going to the same place in eternity. What we do with Jesus is the most important.
