“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him,then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates he sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,I was naked and you clothed me,I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them,’Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,you did it to me.’
“Then he will say to those on his left,’Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
You could say there’s basically two ways two live (don’t know who coined the phrase, but Matthias Media seems to have popularized it with their wonderful curriculum.) www.matthiasmedia.com.au/2wtl
Everybody on the planet will either live in rebellion against God or reconciled to him through repentance and faith in his son Jesus. And the truth is… these two ways of living have huge implications both for this life and the next.
Those who have been graciously reconciled to God through Jesus Christ and his death on the cross will live lives of joyful obedience to the Creator. While those who persist in their sinful rebellion, will continue to continue to heap up wrath for themselves from the hand of God. And even though the subject is never popular, Jesus himself makes it abundantly clear, that how we spend this life is very much linked to how we’ll spend the next.
The glorious Son of Man will one day come and divide all the people of the nations. Some will ” inherit the Kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world” while others will be sent “into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels”
There’s two ways to live…. and one Saviour….Jesus.
