In this sobering passage, we learn that there is a final judgment coming, and that it will be a judgment based upon our works, not upon our profession.

We affirm that salvation is not by works, yet see that works are essential to vindicate our salvation and to show that we are the Lord’s. We are urged to examine ourselves for the fruit of genuine conversion. Those who do not find it in their lives are pointed to Christ as their only hope on that great and dreadful Day of the Lord.
