Me too, sis. Me too.Thank you Adrian for this most excellent teaching. I am one who would have been a greater blessing to those around me if I had not insisted on my own way from time to time. God's mercy brought me back to the narrow way each time and how I praise Him for his kind faithfulness, forgiveness and patience. This forum is blessed to have you here teaching us. I do tremble at times thinking of the judgement seat and what God might have allowed me to do for Him had I never turned to the right or to the left from obeying Him from childhood.
And, BTW, you need not fear the judgment seat of God. Jesus Christ already appeared there on your behalf. The Judge vacated your conviction and sentence. And you never have to go back to that court. Ever. No matter what. God will NEVER judge you again. He only ever judges once and Jesus stood in for you at that judgment ... which already occurred. You were found guilty; but because Jesus paid the FULL penalty for you and for every crime you could ever commit, you are now eternally free. Now the only judgment you will ever experience is the judging of your works. They may perish, but you never can. \o/ \o/ \o/
How awesome is God?!!
