Today I read the Catechism's questions contained in the 19th Lord's Day reading. In that reading appears the following question and answer:
Q. How does Christ's return "to judge the living and the dead" comfort you?
A. In all my distress and persecution I turn my eyes to the heavens and confidently await as judge the very One who has already stood trial in my place before God and so has removed the whole curse from me. All his enemies and mine he will condemn to everlasting punishment: but me and all his chosen ones he will take along with him into the joy and the glory of heaven.
Here is a small excerpt from DeYoung's commentary on this section:
When you stand before the holy Son of God at the end of the age and all your deeds and thoughts are laid bare for the whole world to see-all your petty jealousies, all your lustful glances, all your murderous thoughts, all your self-absorbed days-there will be nothing to fear. There is no chance that Christ will look you up and down and cry out "Curse this one!" because HE already became a curse for us. We can no more be condemned at the throne of God's judgment than God can condemn Himself a second time.
