The most significant payday is yet to come-the one to be received at the Judgment Seat of Christ, But how are Christians to be evaluated?
ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES, how a believer lives right now impacts the results of that "payday"-the appearance before the Judgment Seat of Christ.
Understanding the subject of rewards, which was frequently discussed by Christ and his apostles, is critical for developing a biblical worldview and for producing endurance in the Christian life. The study examines many scriptures that promise significant rewards to the faithful diligent child of God. It also discusses the scriptures that warn of the possible loss of rewards-while making it clear that the believer remains secure in his salvation.
The book wrestles with the relationship of God's grace and the reality of sin and sin's effects and how these matters will be factored in at the Judgment Seat. By studying specific Scripture passages and by viewing the lives of several well-known Bible Characters, Dr.Benware comes to some insightful, eyes-opening conclusions.
Note: The believer's appearance before Christ does not affect his personal salvation, but it does greatly affects his life in the coming kingdom of Christ.
"It is difficult to understand why a topic as potent as an appointment at Christ's Judgment Seat is given so little treatment by preachers or publisher...Dr.Benware has seized the opportunity in this volume to enlighten and challenge Christians with their eternal moment of truth with Judge Jesus Christ." (from the Foreword)
