Standing with the Righteous


The Upward Look

“Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.”
   Psalm 1:5 NASB

At the present moment the ungodly stand side by side with the righteous. They are intermingled like the wheat and the tares growing together until harvest day. On judgment day, God will separate the godly from the wicked. God will judge all based on what they did with Jesus Christ. Those who have a relationship with Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord will go to heaven. All others, the wicked, will not be found in heaven but will face eternal torment in hell. They will not be found standing with the righteous and will have no part in the joys of eternal life.

 Lord Jesus, I am thankful for the salvation I have in You. Help me to share with others that they too can have eternal life in heaven.
