Open Heaven 31 May 2022 Devotional Message
God’s faithfulness extends even to His promise to reward every man and woman according to their works.
This means that the fulfilment of Jesus’ second coming will be accompanied by the award of certain rewards. The implication of this is that those lazy believers who are not serious about the work of the Kingdom of God will live, though in heaven, to regret their idle life of ‘holiness’. The apostle wrote that there will be great rewards for the ministers of the gospel who take care of the flock of God.
And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. – (1 Peter 5:4)
In our Bible text of today, we read about the positive response of Jesus Christ to Peter’s enquiry about what would become of their labour of following Him. The Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6) assures all His followers of great rewards and above all, eternal life. This is the crux of the Christian faith – eternal life. Beloved, is eternal life your motive for following Jesus Christ?
Don’t lose this eternal promise. The Bible further promises that believers in Christ shall have eternal life (John 3:16-18). However, there are categories of rewards after this life. Some may not even get anything. This is implied in the description of the work that we do while still in this body. Paul Apostle wrote:
If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. – (1 Corinthians 3:14-15)
