Rewards for Believers
Salvation is given freely to us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins. But we show our faith through our works. We can't help but do works (everyday action), but some of these are for our own satisfaction and some are for the glory of God. Paul wrote to the Christians at Corinth, "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 first 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." This series discusses just what kind of rewards may be given to believers.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians at Rome; his letter is recorded in the book of Romans. Paul was "set apart," called to share the good news. Why do we need this good news of the gospel? Paul first shows how the wrath of God is against our sinfulness and ungodliness, making his case in the first several chapters. But he goes on to show that there is hope because through Christ, we can be declared righteous. Having been justified, Paul exhorts us to walk according to the spirit, first by transforming our minds. This is one of the most important concepts relating to Christian living found in the entire Bible. Learn about it in this Bible study on the book of Romans.
