DAILY BIBLE READING
Judgment Seat Of Christ
2 Cor. 5:1-11
Believers should know that we are strangers and sojourners on earth, heaven is our home. This understanding should, therefore, be a guiding principle in our walk with God. We must, therefore, do everything possible to please God in all our undertakings. The reason for this is that if we make it during rapture, whether we like it or not, we must all appear at the judgment seat of Christ. However, believers should not be scared of this judgment for it is not judgment for sin because their sins had been judged on the cross at conversion, but it is judgment to receive rewards of the work done whether those works are good or bad. How are you preparing so that you will not weep or frown your face at this judgment?
Point of Emphasis: There will be no partiality at the judgment seat of Christ.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to do good works that will attract rewards in Your presence.
