HI MY FRIENDS, TODAY WE ARE STARTING A NEW TOPIC, THE TOPIC OF REWARDS.
REWARDS OF THE SAINTS:
*OUR REWARD COMES FROM GOD!—– ROM.2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: COL.3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. HEB.11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
*REWARDS ARE OF GRACE THROUGH FAITH ALONE.—– ROMANS 44 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.
5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness: 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all. ROMANS 11: And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work
*REWARDS ARE GIVEN BY GOD’S GOOD PLEASURE!——MATTHEW 20:14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? LUKE 12:32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
*REWARDS ARE PREPARED BY GOD THE FATHER!——HEBREWS 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
