“So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised” (Hebrews 10:35-36).
Yesterday in this series, we looked at Jesus – our ticket to heaven, but not only do we get to spend eternity with Jesus:
There’s a reward.
In your Christian service, what’s your motivation? Are you looking to gain respect or praise from those around you, maybe churchgoers or your family? If you are, they’re the ones from whom you’ll get your reward. On my album “Same Applies”, there’s a song about that:
“If you work to be seen by men,
You’ll have your reward in full;
But if you work in secret,
There is One who knows:
And He will reward you
For everything you do”.
God sees our hearts. Everything we do for Him is noticed, and on the day of judgment, we will be rewarded.
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due to us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
