When the Work Is Done

in New Life Salvation

So, when will we get our rewards? Find out in today's Bible Minute.

Now nobody crowns a champion at round two or at the halftime of a game. You are crowned after the work is done. Rewards are paid as a gracious wage for work that has been accomplished. Work that's accomplished between salvation and the time the Lord either comes to take us home, or we go home to be with Him through death.

Salvation is identical for every sinner, but rewards are different for every saint. We earn rewards; we don't earn salvation. Salvation is a gracious gift. Rewards are a gracious wage paid to us by God. Salvation is now, rewards are future. Your service today will determine your reward in heaven.
