Thy Will Be Done

Lets look at it another way.  If deliberately choosing to follow Christ down a clear and narrow path of holiness is not our choice in this life, will it suddenly be our choice in death?

As we have seen in a simple review of a few passages, scripture is also clear – the trajectory of your life prior to your judgment will be the trajectory of your soul at your judgment – God will merely ratify the decision you have already made. “It is given unto man once to die, then comes judgment.” (Hebrews)

In another passage in The Great Divorce, Lewis reiterates, “There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.’

  1. God is all-merciful when we are living, but upon our death He role is that of Just Judge.

    “..to whom God says, in the end, ‘Thy will be done.” That pretty much says it all.
