Before the days of computers, the standard excuse for missing the office meeting was, "I didn't get the memo!" Though a thinly veiled excuse, it still would sometimes get the slacker by and perhaps without punishment for his absence.
There is one appointment, however, that no one will miss. The bible says there is a great day coming where people will be judged for their deeds on the earth whether they be good or evil. There will be no excuses and no one will be excused.
For those who trusted Jesus Christ for their soul's salvation, they will be judged for their deeds while on earth for the purpose of receiving their reward, at the "Judgement Seat of Christ" (2 Corinthians 5:10), but for the unsaved, their judgement will come on a different day at the "Great White Throne of Judgment." (Revelations 20). Anyone who didn't trust Jesus while living on earth will be judged for not accepting the "gift of eternal life" which was freely offer by Jesus while they lived on earth.
There will be no bargaining or excuses accepted. On judgement day it will be only black and white. Did you accept Jesus? Or did you put it off too long!
Good News!; If you are reading this, it's not too late! Read John 3:16 for instructions, in fact, read the whole book of John- known as the "book of love". You will never be disappointed that you gave your heart to Christ!
