2 Corinthians 5:10

2 Corinthians 5:10 (ESV): "10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil."

Everything we do in life follows us into eternity. We must all appear before the judge Christ Jesus. Will you be rewarded or condemned?

There is an eternal judgment coming for all people. Hebrews 9:27 says, "it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment." If you are in Christ your sins have been dealt with on the cross. Believers are rewarded for their work post-conversion. Unbelievers on the other hand will only be judged for their sins. There is no balance in this judgment that weighs the good deeds of the unbeliever against the bad. Sin will be judged completely and an eternal sentence will be given which will be lived out in the Lake of Fire.

Are you ready to stand before the judgment seat of Christ? Will you receive a reward or will you be condemned to eternal Hell? It all depends on how you responded to the Gospel and then what you did with it afterward. If you have not received Christ and allowed Him to wash away your sins do so now. If you have then live for Christ alone. The reward for doing so will not disappoint, I promise.

Father, turn our hearts to You this day. May we remember that everything we do or don't do has eternal consequences. May we be found clothed in Christ working for Your glory and honor we pray in Jesus' name, amen.
