It won’t matter on that day

Whether we had a career or a degree…

Since the degree that we will be judged

Is whether Christ has set us free.

Have we been liberated

Exempt from liability;

Where all our sins are washed away

So God’s truth we finally see?

Did our career entail

God’s will for our lives,

Or were we entangled with the love of money

To believe the many lies?

It won’t matter how good we were

Since righteous is not one…

Did Jesus become our Lord and Savior

Since He died for everyone?

Was He resurrected in our heart

And did we thirst for His word?

Were we led by the Spirit

As He became our Lord?

The yardstick is the word of God

The ultimate and valid standard;

The authentic, authoritative word indeed

Irrespective of times it’s been tampered.

The thief on the cross

Was a despicable man indeed,

But Christ’s mercy extended till the end

For His soul He did intercede.

So it’s not how righteous we have been

Since we all drastically fall short;

Knowing that the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked

With the many lies we’re taught.

The educational institutions

Have become indoctrination stations;

Where ideologies are fully endorsed

And believed without hesitation.

Because no philosophy, creed or religion

Will ever compare to God’s standard…

Since His pure and undiluted truth

Outlines His doctrine and commandments.

God’s word is the yardstick

As to whether we are eternally saved;

Let’s ensure Christ is our Lord and Savior

Before we hit the grave.
