Jesus Christ lived a life that followed His Father's will perfectly! And it is against Him and His life that we will be measured when we are judged. For the righteous Lord loveth the righteous.
Just when you think you've managed to become a good person remember that it would be impossible without Jesus Christ.
The standard unit of measure in the eternities is not arbitrary and does not change on a whim. It remains as it is and was, a constant whereby anyone in any period of Earth's history can compare themselves to see how they measure up.
Too often we are oblivious to the rusty parts of our lives which desperately need our attention. Without someone to hold up a mirror for us we're doomed to discover them rather abruptly.
The world is in a constant state of deterioration. And if we're not careful our faith will fall prey to it too.
