Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.   Revelation 22:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Will you qualify for a reward on Judgment Day?

MINI BIBLE STUDY FOR THE DAY

Christians are not judged on their good or bad earthly deeds, as far as salvation is concerned, but they are judged on their works for potential rewards from Jesus on Judgment Day. There are at least five rewards available to believers:
1)The Crown of Life — James 1:12 (martyred for your faith).

2) The Wreath Imperishable — I Cor. 9:24-27 (maturity in your faith).

3) The Crown of Exultation — I Thess. 2:19, 20 (for actively witnessing to others about Jesus).

4) The Crown of Righteousness — II Tim. 4:5-8 (longing and watching for the 2nd Coming).

5) The Crown of Glory — I Pet. 5:2-4 (Pastors).

When believers ultimately get to heaven, we will understand how great a price Jesus paid on the cross to purchase our salvation. And there will undoubtedly be great embarrassment and shame for those who lived their entire lives for earthly things and have no eternal rewards to lay in appreciation at Christ’s feet.
