Eternal Judgment, no, Rewards!

Vincent van Gogh Noon Rest from Work 300x243 Eternal Judgment, no, Rewards!Hebrews 6:1   Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Hebrews 6:2    Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

There is to be an ‘eternal judgment’. This is not the judgment of the unsaved. This is for the saved Christian. I’m starting to understand this is an assessment of what we did for the Kingdom.

Hebrews 6:9  But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.

A John Vernon McGee paraphrase here. (I like to listen to his commentary found on the Blue Letter Bible.) We’re not talking about salvation in chapter 6. Remember from Heb 6:1 we are moving past elementary teaching about Christ. Here we are talking about judgment and reward past salvation for the Christian.

We are to be tested by fire. Do you have any fruit in your life? Have we grown in grace and knowledge of Him? In the knowledge of the Word of God? In your relationship with Christ? Even though you may have suffered for it, have you been a witness for Him? Has your life counted for Him? Have you been a blessing to other people? What have you done to glorify God, to expand and strengthen the Kingdom?

Vernon McGee accomplished so much in his life, devoting his life to God, yet said he was not looking forward to the judgment seat of Christ because He’s going to take him apart. If he’s not looking forward to it, oh boy. I’m a bit nervous.

Eternal judgment & reward. I’ll add the reward part here. We shouldn’t skip that. It’s part of the Bible. God has built us to flourish under his plan. Plus I’ve found something unexpected from the forgiveness under Grace, like everyone must, that surprisingly I don’t have a desire to sin as before even knowing I would still not be condemned by God.

So let’s focus on the reward. He’s put it there for us. Like a focus on the spirit not flesh, on Grace not condemnation, likely a focus not on judgment but on reward will allow us to accomplish that much more for God and His Kingdom.

1 Cor 3:14 If any man’s work which he has built on it (the foundation of Christ) remains, he will receive a reward.
Mat 6:20     But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal
Hbr 6:10     For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints.
Luke 6:23     Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in the same way their fathers used to treat the prophets.
