TOPIC: Rewards of the Saints.
*Rewards also prepared by Christ—- John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
*We are rewarded for our service for Christ—-Col.3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
*We are not rewarded for our merit!—–Romans 4:4 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.
*OUR REWARDS ARE DESCRIBED AS:
*Being with Christ.—–Romans 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.][ 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.].
*Beholding the Face of God—–Psalms 17:15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness. [Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.][Rev.22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.].
