Judgment….We All Face It! Matthew 16:27
Is there anyone that is perfect?
2 Corinthians 5:10: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad!”
If we are Saved, then is there Shame when judged? And Why?
1 John 2:28,29: “And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him”!
2 Peter 1:11,12: “Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For this reason I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know and are established in the present truth.
How can a Christian avoid Shame then?
1 Corinthians 3:11-15: 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 revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Colossians 3:16,17: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
Is there a Reward for Faithfulness?
Psalm 58:11So that men will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely He is God who judges in the earth.” Hosea 4:9: And it shall be: like people, like priest. So I will punish them for their ways, And reward them for their deeds.
Matthew 16:27: For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.
