God Will Reward You

How does God reward you? Actually there are two stages of reward. One is here in this life, the other is in the life to come.  Let’s look at the words of Jesus again. He says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you, let not your heart be troubled. Neither let it be afraid”. – John 14:27

The peace He speaks of here is for those where the sins are forgiven whose hearts are washed with the Blood of Christ. It is for those who have completely given their lives over to Him. He gives that peace to men so the Christian life will be worthwhile. You can have peace in your heart as you turn to Him in all your problems. That is part of the reward.

He helps you to resist temptation. He hears your prayers when you call to Him for help.

If you remain faithful to the Lord, you will have a reward in heaven. In this life, you will have disappointments, but in heaven you will have eternal happiness. When you get to heaven, all the troubles and cares of this life will have vanished. You will be with God and the angels and all the faithful Christians forever and ever. That will be the eternal reward.


The Bible tells us that Jesus will return again. He is not coming as a loving Saviour as before, this time He will come as a judge, and He will “reward every man according to his works”. – Matthew 16:27

The sinner will go to the place prepared for the devil and his angels. They’re hope is gone. No one will be able to turn to God for forgiveness. The Bible describes it as “outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth”. – Matthew 8:12. Jesus warns us about the place “where their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched”. – Mark 9:44

As a child of God you need not fear the coming of the Lord, Jesus is coming to take His children home to heaven. He says, “take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is”. – Mark 13:33
