We don’t choose to come into the world, but we have the power to choose where we’ll spend eternity.


Be careful not to make the same mistake

A young woman committed a crime and was sent to court. The punishment for the crime was life in prison. She cried for help, but no one was able to help her. When the case was brought to court, she cried even more.

Her family and friends accompanied her, and they also began to cry. There was no hope. However, something happened. Before the young woman sat in the defense chair, a man stood up and the courtroom went silent. Everyone looked at him. He was a noble and kind man. And he interceded on behalf of the woman.

The case was difficult, but he used all his strength, energy and resources to fight for her. After a long legal battle between the man and her accusers, the woman was released. She fell to her knees before the man and asked, “Who are you?”

The next day, that woman deliberately committed another crime and was sent to the same court.

As soon as she entered, she saw the man that defended her the day before, but now he sat in the judge’s seat. He was no longer a lawyer, now he was a judge. With a smile on her face, she said, “I’m here again!”

The man raised his head and said, “Yesterday I was a lawyer, so I fought for you even when you were guilty. But today I am a judge and my judgment must be fair.”

With tears in her eyes, she asked the second time, “Who are you?”

And the man replied, “Yesterday I was your Savior. But now I am your Judge.”

Today, Jesus is our Lawyer and Redeemer, but the day will come when the Father will give a fair judgment to all.
