There will be rewards! God


Jesus expects us to serve Him out of love, but He is also extremely clear about the rewards that we will receive in Heaven. No act done in faith, love, or obedience – no matter how small - escapes the notice of your Heavenly Father!

For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then He will reward each person according to what he has done. (Matt 16:27)

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has conceived what wonderful things the Lord has in store for those who love Him. (1 Cor 2:9)

Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. (Rev 22:12 NIV)

I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in My Name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward. (Mk 9:41 NIV)

How different our lives would be if we understood that every thought, every action, and every spoken word has eternal consequences! The Holy Spirit put it to me this way:

God can forgive you for what you did, but He can’t reward you for what you haven’t done.

God does not specify what His rewards will be, but you can be sure that they are wonderful beyond description. What rewards do you expect to receive? What rewards do you NOT expect to receive?
