We must all appear before the judgement seat of Chirst that we may receive rewards for what we have done in the flesh, be it good or bad.
Here we have a passage that I still don’t totally understand. I don’t that our sins are not judged here – that was done and dusted when Jesus said ‘it is finished’ and when we put of faith in Him. We are saved, set apart, sanctified, and secure from that moment we accept Christ – He has taken on the judgement for my sin.
So what does it mean when we read ‘we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ?’ What does it mean by rewards both good and bad?
To be honest I am not sure about the details. What I do know though it that somehow we are going to be asked to give an account for how we have lived in Christ. What have we done for Jesus after all He has done for us?
No matter the details, the fact that our actions will be judged ought to motivate us to do all we can to honour Christ in this life.
Thank God that our eternity is secure. But let us strive to live lives now that honour Him and just Him with the details of the rewarding.
