According to the Scriptures, how a believer lives right now impacts the results of that "payday"--the appearance before the judgment seat of Christ. This subject of rewards, which was frequently discussed by Christ and his apostles, is critical for developing a biblical worldview and for producing endurance in the Christian life. The believer's appearance before Christ does not affect his personal salvation, but it does greatly affect his life in the coming kingdom of Christ.
This study looks at the many scriptures that promise significant rewards to the faithful, diligent child of God. It also discusses the Scriptures that warn of the possible loss of rewards while making it clear that the believer remains secure in his salvation. It focuses on the issues that will compose Christ's evaluation of his followers that are designed to both encourage us and challenge us to godly living today.
