The purpose of the final judgment obviously isn't to investigate whether people are guilty of sins; God already knows the hearts of all people. God has three purposes in the final judgment: revelation, vindication, and execution. Today's sermon teaches about God's purposes in judgment in revealing people's deeds, words, and motives.

Great Sermon! Excellent! Not enough people bring these points about the judgement to our attention...we would certainly be living our lives out in a more sober manner if we were aware of what is to come.... again, Excellent teaching!

Provokes reexamining my motives This sermon's points are things that every Christian ought to consider. The fact that there will be a final judgment, and the fear that should provoke in the unsaved, should help motivate our evangelism. The certainty of judgment should also move Christians to keep examining their own actions, words, and underlying motives. Keep preaching the truth, Pastor Bourgeois, even when it's uncomfortable!
