Hello everyone. Today I am going to be talking about Our Works. The works that I am meaning are the works that we do as Christians during our time on earth until we are called home by the Lord Jesus Christ. The amount we through into our works for the Kingdom of Heaven determines how you will be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Our works that we do as Christians who truly believe in Christ will be judged by fire before the Lords judgment seat. Any works that have been done that were of the flesh will also be judged in the same manner.
Do not expect to be able to enter Heaven and be rewarded because of your works alone. You can not enter Heaven by only your works. You must believe in Christ Jesus as you Lord and Savior. You yourself must be saved. Ephesians 2:8,9 says;
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast.
As you can see we are not saved by our works but by the gift of Gods grace and through our faith in Him. We must always have faith in Him and believe that He is with us in everything we do. We must make sure that the works we do are works of, for, and by the Spirit of the Lord. No matter what though, all our works will be tried by fire at the Judgment Seat of Christ.
If you read 1 Corinthians 3:10-13 which says,
According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.
For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,
each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be reveald by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.
As you can see from this part of scripture all of our works will be revealed and tested by fire during the Judgment Seat of Christ. If you hae done works of gold, silver and precious stones then you will be rewarded. But if the works that you have laid are works like wood, hay and straw then you will have great loss by you yourself will be spared.
Brothers and Sisters I urge you all. Lay down works that are of the Spirit upon the foundatio that lays before you. Give into the Spirit of God and cast away that which is of the flesh. To any that are reading this and have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. I beg you not to put it off any longer. Pray to God and ask Him to forgive you of your sins. Allow Jesus Christ to enter your heart and to come into your life. I will be praying for each and everone of you. Until next time. God Bless.
