  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS
  • 00:00:14.240 --> 00:00:16.010
  • AND WELCOME AGAIN TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.020 --> 00:00:19.090
  • AS A PASTOR AND BIBLE TEACHER,
  • 00:00:19.100 --> 00:00:21.030
  • I OFTEN TELL PEOPLE THAT GOD
  • 00:00:21.040 --> 00:00:22.260
  • NEVER SHOWS FAVORITISM.
  • 00:00:22.270 --> 00:00:25.140
  • SCRIPTURE SAYS, "THERE IS NO PARTIALITY WITH GOD."
  • 00:00:25.150 --> 00:00:29.020
  • WE'RE RELIEVED TO SERVE A GOD
  • 00:00:29.030 --> 00:00:30.170
  • WHO IS BOTH JUST AND FAIR.
  • 00:00:30.180 --> 00:00:33.000
  • HOWEVER, YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT
  • 00:00:33.010 --> 00:00:36.030
  • EVERY CHRISTIANS EXPERIENCE IN HEAVEN
  • 00:00:36.040 --> 00:00:39.010
  • WILL NOT BE THE SAME.
  • 00:00:39.020 --> 00:00:41.060
  • EVEN THOUGH ALL CHRISTIANS ENTER THE SAME HEAVEN
  • 00:00:41.070 --> 00:00:43.270
  • AFTER DEATH, THE REWARDS WILL VARY GREATLY!
  • 00:00:43.280 --> 00:00:48.060
  • SO HOW DOES THAT WORK?
  • 00:00:48.070 --> 00:00:50.030
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT "REWARDS IN HEAVEN" ON
  • 00:00:50.040 --> 00:00:52.260
  • TODAY'S EDITION OF PATHWAY TO VICTORY!
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:56.010
  • MUSIC
  • 00:00:56.020 --> 00:01:03.050
  • I'VE ALWAYS WONDERED WHAT
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:04.010
  • THE RAPTURE IS GOING TO BE LIKE?
  • 00:01:04.020 --> 00:01:06.100
  • WHAT'S NEXT ON GOD'S TIMELINE?
  • 00:01:06.110 --> 00:01:08.100
  • WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HADES,
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:11.050
  • HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE?
  • 00:01:11.060 --> 00:01:13.060
  • WHO IS THE ANTICHRIST?
  • 00:01:13.070 --> 00:01:15.130
  • DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS HAS WRITTEN A BRAND-NEW
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:17.110
  • BOOK WITH CLEAR ANSWERS TO TWENTY-ONE QUESTIONS
  • 00:01:17.120 --> 00:01:19.160
  • ABOUT THE END TIMES.
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:21.020
  • DISCOVER WHY UNDERSTANDING BIBLICAL PROPHECY IS
  • 00:01:21.030 --> 00:01:23.200
  • CRITICAL TO YOUR LIFE TODAY,
  • 00:01:23.210 --> 00:01:24.290
  • AS WELL AS YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:01:25.000 --> 00:01:26.080
  • REQUEST CLEAR ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
  • 00:01:26.090 --> 00:01:28.110
  • ABOUT THE END TIMES
  • 00:01:28.120 --> 00:01:29.130
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:30.170
  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY!
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:31.280
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:34.080
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:41.070
  • MY MENTOR, THE LATE HOWARD HENDRICKS,
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:45.140
  • USED TO TELL THE STORY ABOUT THE DOWNHILL SLALOM
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:48.250
  • RACER WHO MADE IT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SKI COURSE,
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:52.120
  • AND HE WAS GREETED BY HIS SKI COACH.
  • 00:01:52.130 --> 00:01:55.130
  • HIS SKI COACH SAID: I'VE GOT SOME GOOD NEWS AND
  • 00:01:55.140 --> 00:01:58.050
  • SOME BAD NEWS FOR YOU.
  • 00:01:58.060 --> 00:02:00.060
  • THE NOVICE SKIER SAID:
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:01.080
  • WELL, WHAT'S THE GOOD NEWS?
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:03.090
  • THE COACH SAID: THE GOOD NEWS IS YOU MADE IT TO THE
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:06.020
  • BOTTOM OF THE HILL IN RECORD TIME;
  • 00:02:06.030 --> 00:02:08.070
  • IN FACT YOU MAY HAVE SET A WORLD'S RECORD.
  • 00:02:08.080 --> 00:02:12.150
  • THE NOVICE SKIER SAID: WELL,
  • 00:02:12.160 --> 00:02:13.170
  • WHAT'S THE BAD NEWS?
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:15.240
  • AND THE COACH SAID: THE BAD NEWS IS YOU MISSED
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:18.280
  • EVERY ONE OF THE FLAGS AND ARE THEREFORE DISQUALIFIED.
  • 00:02:18.290 --> 00:02:24.090
  • TO WHICH THE SKIER SAID: FLAGS?
  • 00:02:24.100 --> 00:02:27.070
  • WHAT FLAGS?
  • 00:02:27.080 --> 00:02:30.070
  • AN EXPERT SKIER KNOWS THAT THE ROUTE HE TAKES TO GET
  • 00:02:30.080 --> 00:02:33.240
  • DOWNHILL IS JUST AS IMPORTANT
  • 00:02:33.250 --> 00:02:36.200
  • AS CROSSING THE FINISH LINE.
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:39.090
  • A GOOD BASKETBALL PLAYER KNOWS THAT EVEN MORE
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:42.030
  • IMPORTANT THAN MAKING THE GOAL,
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:43.230
  • THE BASKET IS MAKING SURE YOU'RE AIMING
  • 00:02:43.240 --> 00:02:46.000
  • TOWARD THE RIGHT BASKET.
  • 00:02:46.010 --> 00:02:48.190
  • YET MANY CHRISTIANS FAIL TO UNDERSTAND A SIMILAR TRUTH.
  • 00:02:48.200 --> 00:02:53.210
  • WHILE IT'S TRUE THAT EVERY GENUINE BELIEVER IN CHRIST
  • 00:02:53.220 --> 00:02:56.240
  • IS GOING TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE AND BE
  • 00:02:56.250 --> 00:02:58.290
  • WELCOMED INTO HEAVEN, THE FACT IS SOME CHRISTIANS
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:02.260
  • ARE GOING TO BE SURPRISED WHEN THEIR WORKS
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:06.060
  • ARE DISQUALIFIED BY THE JUDGE,
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:08.150
  • AND THEY END UP FORFEITING REWARDS.
  • 00:03:08.160 --> 00:03:12.030
  • AND THE RESULT OF THAT FORFEITURE OF REWARDS IS
  • 00:03:12.040 --> 00:03:14.220
  • GOING TO BE REAL LOSS, AND ETERNAL REGRET.
  • 00:03:14.230 --> 00:03:20.230
  • WAIT A MINUTE PASTOR, ARE YOU SAYING THERE IS A
  • 00:03:20.240 --> 00:03:23.270
  • POSSIBILITY THAT I COULD MAKE IT TO HEAVEN,
  • 00:03:23.280 --> 00:03:27.060
  • AND ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE LOSS AND REGRET?
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:31.160
  • ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:03:31.170 --> 00:03:33.170
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST MYTHS ABOUT ETERNITY IS THAT ALL
  • 00:03:33.180 --> 00:03:38.190
  • CHRISTIANS WILL EXPERIENCE THE SAME HEAVEN,
  • 00:03:38.200 --> 00:03:41.250
  • AND ALL NON-CHRISTIANS WILL EXPERIENCE THE SAME HELL.
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:44.290
  • THAT'S A MYTH.
  • 00:03:45.000 --> 00:03:46.110
  • SUCH A BELIEF IS NEITHER LOGICAL,
  • 00:03:46.120 --> 00:03:49.020
  • NOR MORE IMPORTANTLY IS IT BIBLICAL.
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:52.100
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO SEE THAT TRUTH IN OUR PASSAGE TODAY.
  • 00:03:52.110 --> 00:03:54.290
  • TODAY AS WE CONTINUE OUR SERIES ON BIBLE PROPHECY,
  • 00:03:55.000 --> 00:03:58.050
  • PERFECT ENDING: WHY YOUR ETERNAL FUTURE MATTERS
  • 00:03:58.060 --> 00:04:00.260
  • TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:04:00.270 --> 00:04:02.260
  • THE TRUTH OF REWARDS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:04:02.270 --> 00:04:05.090
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES, TURN TO ACTS 18.
  • 00:04:05.100 --> 00:04:09.090
  • ACTS 18.
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:11.090
  • NOW IN OUR STUDY OF BIBLE PROPHECY,
  • 00:04:11.100 --> 00:04:13.060
  • REMEMBER LAST TIME, WE LOOKED AT THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:04:13.070 --> 00:04:15.190
  • THAT AWAITS ALL UNBELIEVERS.
  • 00:04:15.200 --> 00:04:18.110
  • BUT WHAT ABOUT CHRISTIANS?
  • 00:04:18.120 --> 00:04:20.150
  • DO WE EVER HAVE TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT GOD'S
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:22.290
  • EVALUATION OF OUR LIVES?
  • 00:04:23.000 --> 00:04:25.180
  • DO MY WORDS, MY THOUGHTS, MY ACTIONS,
  • 00:04:25.190 --> 00:04:28.000
  • MY MOTIVATIONS COUNT AT ALL AFTER I BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:32.140
  • DOES HOW I OBEY GOD IN THIS LIFE HAVE ANY IMPACT
  • 00:04:32.150 --> 00:04:35.240
  • ON THE KIND OF ETERNAL FUTURE I ENJOY?
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:38.080
  • THE ANSWER TO ALL OF THOSE QUESTIONS IS: YES.
  • 00:04:38.090 --> 00:04:41.080
  • AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT TODAY
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:43.150
  • AS WE TALK ABOUT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:04:43.160 --> 00:04:47.000
  • LOOK AT ACTS 18:12, AND LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:50.180
  • YOU MAY SAY: WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO
  • 00:04:50.190 --> 00:04:51.290
  • WITH REWARDS IN HEAVEN?
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:53.000
  • YOU'LL SEE IN JUST A SECOND.
  • 00:04:53.010 --> 00:04:54.230
  • "BUT WHILE GALLIO WAS PROCONSUL OF ACHAIA,
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:58.030
  • THE JEWS WITH ONE ACCORD ROSE UP AGAINST PAUL AND
  • 00:04:58.040 --> 00:05:01.280
  • THEY BROUGHT HIM BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT."
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:05.140
  • UNDERLINE THAT IN YOUR BIBLE - THE JUDGMENT SEAT.
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:08.190
  • THE GREEK WORD THERE IS BEMA.
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:11.120
  • IT LITERALLY MEANS "A RAISED PLATFORM."
  • 00:05:11.130 --> 00:05:15.070
  • IT WAS A PLACE OF JUDGMENT.
  • 00:05:15.080 --> 00:05:16.250
  • IT'S A PLACE THAT THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WOULD
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.240
  • SIT AND ISSUE HIS EDICT.
  • 00:05:18.250 --> 00:05:21.120
  • AND SO PAUL SHACKLED IN CHAINS,
  • 00:05:21.130 --> 00:05:23.250
  • STANDING BEFORE THIS JUDGE,
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:25.130
  • KNOWING THAT WITH ONE WORD HE COULD EXTINGUISH YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:05:25.140 --> 00:05:30.220
  • WOULD YOU BE TEMPTED TO BACK DOWN,
  • 00:05:30.230 --> 00:05:32.220
  • TO WAVER A LITTLE BIT IN YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:34.270
  • GOSPEL WHEN FACING DEATH?
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:37.010
  • PAUL DIDN'T WAVER ONE BIT.
  • 00:05:37.020 --> 00:05:39.230
  • YOU KNOW WHY HE DIDN'T WAVER?
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:41.160
  • WHY HE HAD NO FEAR ABOUT STANDING BEFORE GALLIO AT
  • 00:05:41.170 --> 00:05:44.150
  • THE BEMA, THE JUDGMENT SEAT?
  • 00:05:44.160 --> 00:05:47.000
  • BECAUSE PAUL UNDERSTOOD THAT ONE DAY HE WAS GOING
  • 00:05:47.010 --> 00:05:50.100
  • TO STAND BEFORE ANOTHER JUDGE AT ANOTHER JUDGMENT
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:54.080
  • SEAT; AND THIS JUDGE HAD THE ABILITY NOT JUST TO
  • 00:05:54.090 --> 00:05:57.160
  • EXTINGUISH HIS PHYSICAL LIFE,
  • 00:05:57.170 --> 00:05:59.100
  • BUT HIS SOUL.
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:00.210
  • AND THAT'S WHY PAUL WROTE IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5:9-10,
  • 00:06:00.220 --> 00:06:04.240
  • "THEREFORE WE ALSO HAVE AS OUR AMBITION,
  • 00:06:04.250 --> 00:06:07.180
  • WHETHER AT HOME OR ABSENT," THAT IS WHETHER
  • 00:06:07.190 --> 00:06:10.180
  • WITH CHRIST OR HERE ON EARTH WE HAVE AS OUR
  • 00:06:10.190 --> 00:06:12.250
  • AMBITION, "TO BE PLEASING TO HIM."
  • 00:06:12.260 --> 00:06:15.110
  • WHY?
  • 00:06:15.120 --> 00:06:16.090
  • WHY IS OUR ONE GOAL TO PLEASE GOD?
  • 00:06:16.100 --> 00:06:18.260
  • VERSE 10, "FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:23.160
  • SEAT (THE BEMA) OF JESUS CHRIST,
  • 00:06:23.170 --> 00:06:26.070
  • THAT EACH ONE MAY BE RECOMPENSED FOR WHAT HE
  • 00:06:26.080 --> 00:06:29.200
  • HAS DONE IN THE BODY, WHETHER IT BE GOOD OR
  • 00:06:29.210 --> 00:06:32.170
  • WHETHER IT BE BAD."
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:34.080
  • LITERALLY THAT WORD FALLON MEANS "WORTHLESS."
  • 00:06:34.090 --> 00:06:37.010
  • THAT IS, EVERY ONE OF US WHO IS A CHRISTIAN IS
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:40.090
  • GOING TO STAND BEFORE GOD, AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:43.080
  • OUR LIVES EVALUATED BY GOD: OUR WORDS,
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:47.200
  • OUR THOUGHTS, OUR ACTIONS, OUR MOTIVATIONS.
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:51.290
  • NOW SOME PEOPLE HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH THIS IDEA
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:54.150
  • OF A JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST,
  • 00:06:54.160 --> 00:06:55.260
  • BUT LET ME BE VERY CLEAR, THIS JUDGMENT,
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:58.240
  • UNLIKE THE WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT,
  • 00:06:58.250 --> 00:07:00.280
  • IS NOT A JUDGMENT OF CONDEMNATION,
  • 00:07:00.290 --> 00:07:05.060
  • IT IS A JUDGMENT OF COMMENDATION
  • 00:07:05.070 --> 00:07:07.230
  • AND THE EVALUATION OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:10.040
  • AND THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:07:10.050 --> 00:07:11.180
  • AND YET THE FACT IS MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE A
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:13.240
  • DIFFICULT TIME ACCEPTING THAT TRUTH.
  • 00:07:13.250 --> 00:07:16.170
  • THEY SAY: DOESN'T BECOMING A CHRISTIAN MEAN THAT GOD
  • 00:07:16.180 --> 00:07:19.120
  • HAS FORGIVEN ME OF ALL OF THE BAD THINGS IN MY LIFE?
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:22.100
  • AND WHEN GOD FORGIVES, DOESN'T HE FORGET?
  • 00:07:22.110 --> 00:07:24.260
  • HOW CAN HE DREDGE THESE THINGS UP?
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:27.050
  • AND AREN'T MY GOOD WORKS
  • 00:07:27.060 --> 00:07:28.240
  • ACTUALLY WORTHLESS BEFORE CHRIST?
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:31.010
  • NOW I PROMISE I'M GOING TO ANSWER EACH OF THESE
  • 00:07:31.020 --> 00:07:33.150
  • QUESTIONS IN JUST A MOMENT,
  • 00:07:33.160 --> 00:07:35.060
  • BUT I WANT TO LOOK AT FIRST IS THE REALITY,
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:38.040
  • THE CERTAINTY OF THIS JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:07:38.050 --> 00:07:41.220
  • TURN OVER TO 1 CORINTHIANS 3.
  • 00:07:41.230 --> 00:07:44.170
  • PROBABLY NO PASSAGE IN THE NEW TESTAMENT EXPLAINS
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:47.270
  • THIS JUDGMENT BETTER THAN 1 CORINTHIANS 3:10-15.
  • 00:07:47.280 --> 00:07:53.220
  • I WANT YOU TO NOTICE, FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:07:53.230 --> 00:07:55.150
  • IN 1 CORINTHIANS 3:13 WHAT PAUL SAYS.
  • 00:07:55.160 --> 00:07:59.060
  • HE SAYS, "EACH MAN'S WORK WILL BECOME EVIDENT;
  • 00:07:59.070 --> 00:08:02.250
  • FOR THE DAY WILL SHOW IT BECAUSE IT IS TO BE
  • 00:08:02.260 --> 00:08:06.000
  • REVEALED WITH FIRE, AND THE FIRE ITSELF WILL TEST
  • 00:08:06.010 --> 00:08:09.230
  • THE QUALITY OF EACH MAN'S WORK."
  • 00:08:09.240 --> 00:08:12.070
  • AND THEN IN 2 CORINTHIANS 5:10 HE SAYS,
  • 00:08:12.080 --> 00:08:14.260
  • "FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT SEAT
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:17.240
  • OF CHRIST, THAT EACH ONE MAY BE RECOMPENSED FOR HIS
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:21.050
  • DEEDS IN THE BODY, WHETHER GOOD OR WORTHLESS."
  • 00:08:21.060 --> 00:08:25.090
  • WHAT I WANT YOU TO SEE IS
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:26.170
  • THE COMPLETENESS OF THIS JUDGMENT.
  • 00:08:26.180 --> 00:08:28.160
  • PAUL SAYS IN 1 CORINTHIANS 3:13 "IT IS FOR EACH MAN"
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:32.250
  • THAT IS FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:34.150
  • SECOND CORINTHIANS 5:10 SAYS IT ENCOMPASSES
  • 00:08:34.160 --> 00:08:37.210
  • ALL OF OUR WORKS.
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:40.090
  • NOW A LOT OF CHRISTIANS, AGAIN,
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.170
  • REJECT THIS IDEA BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN ERRONEOUSLY
  • 00:08:41.180 --> 00:08:44.200
  • TAUGHT THAT ONCE WE'VE BECOME A CHRISTIAN NEITHER
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:48.260
  • OUR SINS, NOR OUR GOOD WORKS
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:52.030
  • MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE TO GOD.
  • 00:08:52.040 --> 00:08:54.170
  • GOD DOESN'T CARE ABOUT OUR WORKS
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:55.280
  • ONCE WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:58.030
  • BUT THAT'S NOT TRUE.
  • 00:08:58.040 --> 00:08:59.230
  • I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR HERE THAT THIS JUDGMENT
  • 00:08:59.240 --> 00:09:02.080
  • SEAT OF CHRIST IN NO WAY INVALIDATES GOD'S
  • 00:09:02.090 --> 00:09:05.110
  • FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS.
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:07.090
  • BUT THAT DOES NOT NEGATE THE TRUTH OF GOD'S
  • 00:09:07.100 --> 00:09:11.010
  • EVALUATION OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:11.020 --> 00:09:12.180
  • LISTEN, WHEN WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN WE'RE EXEMPTED
  • 00:09:12.190 --> 00:09:16.240
  • FROM GOD'S FUTURE CONDEMNATION OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:16.250 --> 00:09:20.170
  • WE ARE NOT EXEMPTED FROM GOD'S EVALUATION OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:24.180
  • THE FACT IS YOU CAN LOOK ALL THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE
  • 00:09:24.190 --> 00:09:26.170
  • AND SEE INSTANCES WHERE GOD EVALUATES THE LIFE OF
  • 00:09:26.180 --> 00:09:30.070
  • HIS OWN CHILDREN WITH CONSEQUENCES IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:09:30.080 --> 00:09:33.160
  • AND THOSE CONSEQUENCES EXTEND
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:35.040
  • TO THE NEXT LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:37.160
  • I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE A DISTINCTION BETWEEN
  • 00:09:37.170 --> 00:09:41.120
  • WORKS BEFORE WE'RE A CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:09:41.130 --> 00:09:43.140
  • AND WORKS AFTER WE ARE A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:09:43.150 --> 00:09:46.060
  • YOU KNOW, BEFORE WE TRUST IN CHRIST AS OUR SAVIOR,
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:48.210
  • OUR WORKS ARE ONLY SUFFICIENT TO CONDEMN US.
  • 00:09:48.220 --> 00:09:52.150
  • THAT'S ALL THAT MATTER BEFORE GOD.
  • 00:09:52.160 --> 00:09:54.130
  • OUR WORKS CONDEMN US.
  • 00:09:54.140 --> 00:09:56.070
  • BUT AFTER WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN OUR WORKS
  • 00:09:56.080 --> 00:09:59.020
  • MEAN A GREAT DEAL TO GOD.
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.210
  • REMEMBER OUR PASSAGE IN EPHESIANS 2:8-10?
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:04.150
  • "FOR BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED THROUGH FAITH;
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:07.290
  • AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES IT IS A GIFT OF GOD,
  • 00:10:08.000 --> 00:10:11.070
  • NOT OF WORKS; LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST."
  • 00:10:11.080 --> 00:10:15.090
  • BUT THEN IN VERSE 10 PAUL SAYS,
  • 00:10:15.100 --> 00:10:17.000
  • "FOR WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP CREATED IN
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:20.030
  • CHRIST FOR GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED
  • 00:10:20.040 --> 00:10:23.120
  • BEFOREHAND THAT WE MIGHT WALK IN THEM."
  • 00:10:23.130 --> 00:10:27.000
  • WE ARE NOT SAVED BY GOOD WORKS,
  • 00:10:27.010 --> 00:10:29.140
  • BUT WE HAVE BEEN SAVED FOR GOOD WORKS.
  • 00:10:29.150 --> 00:10:32.110
  • ANOTHER WAY TO SAY IT IS: OUR WORKS CANNOT SECURE
  • 00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:36.120
  • OUR PLACE IN HEAVEN, BUT THEY DO SECURE
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:39.290
  • OUR RANK IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.270
  • HOW WE BEHAVE AFTER WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN HAS A
  • 00:10:41.280 --> 00:10:45.210
  • GREAT IMPACT ON THE KIND OF ETERNITY WE EXPERIENCE;
  • 00:10:45.220 --> 00:10:49.240
  • THE REALITY OF THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:10:49.250 --> 00:10:51.230
  • NOTICE HERE, THOUGH, IN 1 CORINTHIANS 3:11-13
  • 00:10:51.240 --> 00:10:55.010
  • PAUL TELLS US ABOUT THE BASIS FOR
  • 00:10:55.020 --> 00:10:57.100
  • THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:10:57.110 --> 00:10:59.000
  • "FOR NO MAN CAN LAY A FOUNDATION OTHER THAN THE
  • 00:10:59.010 --> 00:11:02.020
  • ONE WHICH IS LAID, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:11:02.030 --> 00:11:04.230
  • NOW IF ANY MAN BUILDS ON THE FOUNDATION WITH GOLD,
  • 00:11:04.240 --> 00:11:08.140
  • SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES, WOOD,
  • 00:11:08.150 --> 00:11:10.280
  • HAY, STRAW, EACH MAN'S WORK WILL BECOME EVIDENT;
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:14.290
  • FOR THE DAY WILL SHOW IT BECAUSE IT IS TO BE
  • 00:11:15.000 --> 00:11:17.090
  • REVEALED WITH FIRE, AND THE FIRE ITSELF WILL TEST
  • 00:11:17.100 --> 00:11:21.150
  • THE QUALITY OF EACH MAN'S WORK."
  • 00:11:21.160 --> 00:11:24.040
  • HE SAID WHEN WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN WE ENTER THE
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:26.220
  • FAMILY OF GOD, AND NOTHING WILL CHANGE THAT.
  • 00:11:26.230 --> 00:11:29.240
  • ROMANS 11:29 SAYS: FOR THE GIFTS AND THE CALLING OF
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:32.110
  • GOD ARE IRREVOCABLE.
  • 00:11:32.120 --> 00:11:34.220
  • WHEN WE BECOME A CHRISTIAN WE ARE ADOPTED INTO GOD'S
  • 00:11:34.230 --> 00:11:37.220
  • FAMILY, AND WE ALL ARE GIVEN THE SAME FOUNDATION
  • 00:11:37.230 --> 00:11:41.120
  • - THE FOUNDATION OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:41.130 --> 00:11:43.200
  • THAT'S 1 CORINTHIANS 3:11, WE ALL HAD THE SAME
  • 00:11:43.210 --> 00:11:46.000
  • FOUNDATION, THE FOUNDATION OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:46.010 --> 00:11:48.090
  • BUT YOU AND I DECIDE WHAT KIND OF LIFE WE'RE GOING
  • 00:11:48.100 --> 00:11:52.040
  • TO BUILD ON THAT FOUNDATION.
  • 00:11:52.050 --> 00:11:54.020
  • WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH THE TIME,
  • 00:11:54.030 --> 00:11:55.210
  • THE GIFTS, THE RESOURCES THAT GOD HAS GIVEN TO US?
  • 00:11:55.220 --> 00:11:59.260
  • NOW PAUL MENTIONS IN THESE PASSAGES IN 1 CORINTHIANS
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:03.190
  • TWO DIFFERENT CRITERIA BY WHICH GOD IS GOING TO DO
  • 00:12:03.200 --> 00:12:06.190
  • THAT EVALUATION, NOT OF OUR HOMES,
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:08.240
  • BUT OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:12:08.250 --> 00:12:10.130
  • THE FIRST CRITERION IS THE DURABILITY OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:14.040
  • HAVE WE CONSTRUCTED OUR LIFE WITH GOLD,
  • 00:12:14.050 --> 00:12:17.030
  • SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES, OR IS OUR LIFE CONSTRUCTED
  • 00:12:17.040 --> 00:12:21.130
  • WITH WOOD, HAY, AND STRAW.
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:23.270
  • IF YOU BUILD YOUR LIFE AROUND CAREER,
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:28.040
  • BUILDING A FINANCIAL PORTFOLIO,
  • 00:12:28.050 --> 00:12:30.140
  • SENSUAL PLEASURES - THAT IS A LIFE THAT IS BUILT
  • 00:12:30.150 --> 00:12:33.200
  • AROUND WOOD, HAY, AND STRAW.
  • 00:12:33.210 --> 00:12:37.040
  • IF YOU INVEST YOUR LIFE IN ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:40.060
  • GOD, OF SHARING HIS MESSAGE WITH OTHERS,
  • 00:12:40.070 --> 00:12:42.190
  • OF DEVELOPING A GODLY CHARACTER IN YOUR LIFE -
  • 00:12:42.200 --> 00:12:45.090
  • THAT IS BUILDING YOUR LIFE WITH GOLD,
  • 00:12:45.100 --> 00:12:47.130
  • SILVER, AND PRECIOUS STONES.
  • 00:12:47.140 --> 00:12:50.250
  • LET ME STOP HERE AND ASK YOU THE QUESTION: WHAT'S
  • 00:12:50.260 --> 00:12:53.290
  • THE FOCUS OF YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:12:54.000 --> 00:12:56.110
  • IS YOUR FOCUS THAT WHICH IS TEMPORAL OR IS IT THAT
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:13:00.080
  • WHICH IS ETERNAL?
  • 00:13:00.090 --> 00:13:02.260
  • PAUL SAYS THAT'S ONE CRITERION,
  • 00:13:02.270 --> 00:13:05.070
  • THE DURABILITY OF OUR LIFE;
  • 00:13:05.080 --> 00:13:06.180
  • BUT THERE'S A SECOND CRITERION,
  • 00:13:06.190 --> 00:13:08.060
  • AND THAT IS THE MOTIVES OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:13:08.070 --> 00:13:11.060
  • THAT IS, SOMETIMES WHY WE DO SOMETHING IS JUST AS
  • 00:13:11.070 --> 00:13:13.260
  • IMPORTANT AS WHAT WE END UP DOING.
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:15.190
  • IN 1 CORINTHIANS 4:5 PAUL TALKS ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:13:15.200 --> 00:13:18.230
  • HE SAYS, "THEREFORE DO NOT GO ON PASSING JUDGMENT
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:21.190
  • BEFORE THE TIME, BUT WAIT UNTIL THE LORD COMES WHO
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:24.240
  • WILL BRING BOTH TO LIGHT THE THINGS HIDDEN IN THE
  • 00:13:24.250 --> 00:13:27.190
  • DARKNESS AND DISCLOSE THE MOTIVES OF MEN'S HEARTS;
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:31.230
  • AND THEN EACH MAN'S PRAISE WILL COME TO HIM FROM GOD."
  • 00:13:31.240 --> 00:13:36.270
  • IF I SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH SOMEBODY BECAUSE OF MY
  • 00:13:36.280 --> 00:13:39.130
  • GENERAL AND REAL CONCERN FOR HIS WELL-BEING,
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:43.150
  • THAT'S RENDERED AS GOLD.
  • 00:13:43.160 --> 00:13:45.180
  • IF I SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH SOMEBODY SO I CAN BRAG
  • 00:13:45.190 --> 00:13:47.240
  • ABOUT IT TO ANOTHER PERSON,
  • 00:13:47.250 --> 00:13:49.060
  • THAT'S WOOD.
  • 00:13:49.070 --> 00:13:50.260
  • GOD DOES CARE ABOUT OUR MOTIVES,
  • 00:13:50.270 --> 00:13:52.120
  • PROVERBS 16:2 SAYS, "ALL THE WAYS OF A MAN ARE
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:55.190
  • CLEAN IN HIS OWN SIGHT, BUT THE LORD WEIGHS THE MOTIVES."
  • 00:13:55.200 --> 00:14:01.030
  • NOW ONE WORD OF CAUTION HERE FOLKS,
  • 00:14:01.040 --> 00:14:04.060
  • DON'T USE MOTIVES AS A COPOUT FOR DISOBEDIENCE.
  • 00:14:04.070 --> 00:14:08.100
  • SOME PEOPLE WILL SAY: WELL,
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:09.140
  • MY HEART'S REALLY NOT IN IT SO MAYBE
  • 00:14:09.150 --> 00:14:11.020
  • I SHOULDN'T DO IT AT ALL.
  • 00:14:11.030 --> 00:14:12.220
  • DID YOU KNOW ONE OF THE PUREST MOTIVATIONS FOR
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:16.010
  • OBEYING GOD IS FAITH?
  • 00:14:16.020 --> 00:14:18.260
  • THAT IS, THE FAITH THAT GOD IS GOING TO REWARD ME
  • 00:14:18.270 --> 00:14:22.280
  • FOR MY OBEDIENCE TO HIM.
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:25.210
  • I MAY NOT FEEL LIKE GIVING MY MONEY TO THE CHURCH
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:27.270
  • THIS MONTH, BUT I'M GOING TO GIVE IT BECAUSE I
  • 00:14:27.280 --> 00:14:29.290
  • BELIEVE GOD'S GOING TO REWARD ME SOMEDAY FOR IT.
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:33.000
  • I MAY NOT FEEL LIKE COMING TO CHURCH TODAY,
  • 00:14:33.010 --> 00:14:35.100
  • I MIGHT FEEL LIKE I'D RATHER BE AT THE LAKE,
  • 00:14:35.110 --> 00:14:37.040
  • BUT I COME AND I TEACH MY SECOND GRADE SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.250
  • BECAUSE I BELIEVE SOMEWHERE THERE IS GOING TO BE A
  • 00:14:39.260 --> 00:14:42.070
  • COMMENDATION, A REWARD FOR THAT.
  • 00:14:42.080 --> 00:14:44.140
  • THE MOST IMPORTANT THING THAT GOD LOOKS FOR IN EACH
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:47.080
  • OF OUR LIVES IS FAITH.
  • 00:14:47.090 --> 00:14:49.000
  • HEBREWS 11:6 SAYS, "WITHOUT FAITH IT IS
  • 00:14:49.010 --> 00:14:51.180
  • IMPOSSIBLE TO BELIEVE GOD, FOR HE WHO COMES TO GOD
  • 00:14:51.190 --> 00:14:55.100
  • MUST BELIEVE THAT GOD IS, AND THAT HE IS..."
  • 00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:58.270
  • WHAT?
  • 00:14:58.280 --> 00:14:59.290
  • "...A REWARDER OF THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM."
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:04.020
  • THERE IS NO BETTER DEMONSTRATION OF FAITH,
  • 00:15:04.030 --> 00:15:07.260
  • GOD-PLEASING FAITH, THAN MAKING TEMPORARY
  • 00:15:07.270 --> 00:15:11.110
  • SACRIFICES IN THIS LIFE BUILT ON THE ASSURANCE,
  • 00:15:11.120 --> 00:15:15.060
  • THE PROMISE THAT GOD IS GOING TO REWARD YOU
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:17.100
  • IN THE NEXT LIFE.
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:18.130
  • GOD HONORS THAT KIND OF FAITH.
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:21.160
  • NOW WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF A JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST?
  • 00:15:21.170 --> 00:15:24.170
  • THAT IS, IF I MAKE IT INTO HEAVEN ISN'T THAT ENOUGH?
  • 00:15:24.180 --> 00:15:28.070
  • WON'T I BE TOTALLY SATISFIED IF
  • 00:15:28.080 --> 00:15:29.270
  • I JUST MAKE IT INTO HEAVEN?
  • 00:15:29.280 --> 00:15:32.220
  • PAUL DOESN'T HESITATE IN ANSWERING THOSE QUESTIONS.
  • 00:15:32.230 --> 00:15:34.280
  • HE SAYS THERE ARE GOING TO BE REAL,
  • 00:15:34.290 --> 00:15:37.100
  • LASTING, FELT CONSEQUENCES DEPENDING UPON HOW WE DO
  • 00:15:37.110 --> 00:15:41.260
  • AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:43.150
  • LOOK AT FIRST CORINTHIANS 3:14-15.
  • 00:15:43.160 --> 00:15:45.230
  • HERE ARE THE RESULTS, "IF ANY MAN'S WORK WHICH HE
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:49.010
  • HAS BUILT ON IT REMAINS, HE SHALL RECEIVE A REWARD.
  • 00:15:49.020 --> 00:15:53.250
  • BUT IF ANY MAN'S WORK IS BURNED UP,
  • 00:15:53.260 --> 00:15:56.180
  • HE SHALL SUFFER LOSS; BUT HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED,
  • 00:15:56.190 --> 00:16:00.260
  • SO AS THROUGH FIRE."
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:04.050
  • PAUL SAYS THERE ARE TWO POSSIBLE OUTCOMES THAT
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:07.080
  • AWAIT US AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:16:07.090 --> 00:16:09.090
  • ONE POSSIBLE OUTCOME IS REWARDS.
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:12.200
  • VERSE 14 SAYS THE ONE WHO DOES WELL,
  • 00:16:12.210 --> 00:16:15.200
  • HE SHALL RECEIVE A REWARD.
  • 00:16:15.210 --> 00:16:19.040
  • WHAT ARE THESE REWARDS?
  • 00:16:19.050 --> 00:16:21.100
  • THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT CROWNS IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:16:21.110 --> 00:16:24.240
  • THERE IS THE CROWN OF GLORY,
  • 00:16:24.250 --> 00:16:26.010
  • 1 PETER 5:4, FOR THOSE WHO SERVE IN CHURCH LEADERSHIP.
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:30.110
  • THERE IS THE CROWN OF JOY IN
  • 00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:32.010
  • 1 THESSALONIANS 2:19-20, WHICH IS ASSOCIATED WITH EVANGELISM.
  • 00:16:32.020 --> 00:16:37.070
  • THERE'S THE CROWN OF LIFE, JAMES 1:12,
  • 00:16:37.080 --> 00:16:39.130
  • WHICH IS RESERVED FOR THOSE WHO ENDURE
  • 00:16:39.140 --> 00:16:41.040
  • THE TRIALS OF LIFE.
  • 00:16:41.050 --> 00:16:42.180
  • THERE'S THE CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:16:42.190 --> 00:16:45.040
  • PAUL TALKED ABOUT THAT IN 2 TIMOTHY 2:4,
  • 00:16:45.050 --> 00:16:47.170
  • THAT IS BESTOWED ON THOSE WHO LIVED THEIR LIVES IN
  • 00:16:47.180 --> 00:16:50.110
  • ANTICIPATION OF THE LORD'S RETURNS.
  • 00:16:50.120 --> 00:16:52.280
  • THE BIBLE SAYS THERE ARE REAL,
  • 00:16:52.290 --> 00:16:55.030
  • TANGIBLE REWARDS AWAITING THOSE
  • 00:16:55.040 --> 00:16:57.130
  • WHO SERVE CHRIST OBEDIENTLY.
  • 00:16:57.140 --> 00:16:59.060
  • WHAT ARE THOSE REWARDS?
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:00.190
  • LET ME MENTION THREE OF THEM THAT
  • 00:17:00.200 --> 00:17:02.010
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKS ABOUT.
  • 00:17:02.020 --> 00:17:03.150
  • FIRST OF ALL, THERE ARE GOING TO BE SPECIAL
  • 00:17:03.160 --> 00:17:05.080
  • PRIVILEGES IN HEAVEN FOR THE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:17:05.090 --> 00:17:09.050
  • WHEN OUR GIRLS WERE LITTLE,
  • 00:17:09.060 --> 00:17:10.220
  • WE MADE SEVERAL TREKS TO DISNEY WORLD.
  • 00:17:10.230 --> 00:17:15.020
  • BUT IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN TO DISNEY WORLD YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:15.030 --> 00:17:17.070
  • FOR A SINGLE PRICE YOU CAN ENJOY ALL THE ATTRACTIONS
  • 00:17:17.080 --> 00:17:21.120
  • IN THE THEME PARK.
  • 00:17:21.130 --> 00:17:23.050
  • AND YET IF YOU'RE WILLING TO PAY JUST A LITTLE MORE,
  • 00:17:23.060 --> 00:17:26.220
  • YOU CAN GET SOME SPECIAL PERKS.
  • 00:17:26.230 --> 00:17:28.080
  • I MEAN FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE MONEY YOU CAN GO INTO
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:30.200
  • THE PARK EARLY, OR YOU CAN STAY IN NICER
  • 00:17:30.210 --> 00:17:33.080
  • ACCOMMODATIONS, OR BEST OF ALL YOU CAN HAVE BREAKFAST
  • 00:17:33.090 --> 00:17:36.170
  • WITH MICKEY AND MINNIE, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:38.230
  • I MEAN THOSE EXTRA PERKS ARE NICE FOR THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:17:38.240 --> 00:17:41.060
  • WILLING TO PAY A LITTLE BIT MORE.
  • 00:17:41.070 --> 00:17:42.270
  • DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE GOING TO BE EXTRA
  • 00:17:42.280 --> 00:17:44.070
  • PRIVILEGES IN HEAVEN FOR THOSE WHO DO WELL AT THE
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:46.170
  • JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST?
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:48.010
  • FOR EXAMPLE, 2 PETER 1:11 SAYS THERE'S GOING TO BE A
  • 00:17:48.020 --> 00:17:50.130
  • SPECIAL ENTRANCE INTO THE KINGDOM NOT OF MICKEY,
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:53.040
  • BUT OF GOD.
  • 00:17:53.050 --> 00:17:54.200
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE A SPECIAL GATE,
  • 00:17:54.210 --> 00:17:56.020
  • AN ACCESS TO THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:17:56.030 --> 00:17:58.160
  • REVELATION 2:7 SAYS THERE'S GOING TO SPECIAL
  • 00:17:58.170 --> 00:18:01.070
  • ACCESS TO THE TREE OF LIFE.
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:03.100
  • EVEN LUKE 12:37 SAYS THERE'S GOING TO BE
  • 00:18:03.110 --> 00:18:06.070
  • SPECIAL TREATMENT BY CHRIST
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:08.120
  • TO THOSE WHO ARE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:18:08.130 --> 00:18:09.230
  • NOW LOOK, I DON'T PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:11.270
  • THESE PERKS MEAN, BUT THE BIBLE SAYS THEY ARE REAL,
  • 00:18:11.280 --> 00:18:15.290
  • AND THEY'RE REALLY WORTH WORKING FOR.
  • 00:18:16.000 --> 00:18:18.120
  • THEY'RE WORTH SACRIFICING FOR IN THIS LIFE,
  • 00:18:18.130 --> 00:18:20.260
  • SPECIAL PRIVILEGES FROM HEAVEN.
  • 00:18:20.270 --> 00:18:22.070
  • SECONDLY, THERE'S GOING TO BE SPECIAL PRAISE FROM THE
  • 00:18:22.080 --> 00:18:24.250
  • LORD FOR THOSE WHO ARE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:18:24.260 --> 00:18:28.080
  • CAN YOU REMEMBER EVER A TIME WHEN EITHER YOUR MOM
  • 00:18:28.090 --> 00:18:31.090
  • OR DAD SAID TO YOU: I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:37.110
  • IT'S AN HONOR TO BE YOUR MOM,
  • 00:18:37.120 --> 00:18:39.000
  • YOUR DAD.
  • 00:18:39.010 --> 00:18:40.230
  • CAN YOU EVER RECALL A TIME WHEN YOUR EMPLOYER BROUGHT
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:43.060
  • YOU INTO HIS OFFICE AND SAID: I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:18:43.070 --> 00:18:45.230
  • HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE DOING
  • 00:18:45.240 --> 00:18:47.250
  • FOR OUR ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:18:47.260 --> 00:18:49.030
  • WE COULDN'T MAKE IT IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:49.040 --> 00:18:52.190
  • THOSE WHO SERVE FAITHFULLY IN THIS LIFE WILL HEAR
  • 00:18:52.200 --> 00:18:55.010
  • THAT KIND OF PRAISE FROM THE LORD.
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:56.180
  • WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT.
  • 00:18:56.190 --> 00:19:00.160
  • THIRDLY, THERE ARE GOING TO BE POSITIONS OF
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:02.150
  • AUTHORITY FOR THOSE WHO DO WELL AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST.
  • 00:19:02.160 --> 00:19:05.130
  • MATTHEW 25:21, "HIS MASTER SAID TO HIM,
  • 00:19:05.140 --> 00:19:08.150
  • 'WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SLAVE.
  • 00:19:08.160 --> 00:19:11.010
  • YOU WERE FAITHFUL WITH A FEW THINGS,
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:13.050
  • I WILL PUT YOU IN CHARGE OF MANY THINGS;
  • 00:19:13.060 --> 00:19:16.060
  • ENTER INTO THE JOY OF YOUR MASTER.'" AND THOSE WHO DO
  • 00:19:16.070 --> 00:19:20.240
  • WELL AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST ONE DAY WILL
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:23.030
  • RULE OVER PLANETS, OVER THE ANGELS,
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:25.150
  • OVER OTHER BELIEVERS.
  • 00:19:25.160 --> 00:19:27.080
  • SPECIAL POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY.
  • 00:19:27.090 --> 00:19:30.030
  • NOW I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING.
  • 00:19:30.040 --> 00:19:32.080
  • YOU'RE THINKING: YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING.
  • 00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:35.090
  • MORE WORK IN HEAVEN?
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:38.060
  • THAT SOUNDS LIKE HELL TO ME.
  • 00:19:38.070 --> 00:19:41.130
  • I MEAN, LAST THING I WANT TO DO IS HAVE RESPONSIBILITY.
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:44.050
  • I JUST WANT TO FLOAT AROUND ON MY CLOUD UP THERE.
  • 00:19:44.060 --> 00:19:47.130
  • WELL THINK AGAIN.
  • 00:19:47.140 --> 00:19:49.060
  • YOU KNOW GENESIS TELLS US THAT WE WERE
  • 00:19:49.070 --> 00:19:50.220
  • CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE.
  • 00:19:50.230 --> 00:19:52.280
  • GOD IS A WORKER.
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:53.220
  • HE CREATED US TO BE WORKERS.
  • 00:19:53.230 --> 00:19:55.140
  • HE WANTED US TO FIND SATISFACTION IN OUR WORK.
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:59.010
  • HE WANTED US TO BE EXHILARATED,
  • 00:19:59.020 --> 00:20:00.150
  • NOT DEBILITATED BY OUR WORK.
  • 00:20:00.160 --> 00:20:03.010
  • THE ONLY REASON WORK BECAME PAINFUL IS BECAUSE
  • 00:20:03.020 --> 00:20:05.280
  • OF SIN THAT ENTERED INTO THE WORLD.
  • 00:20:05.290 --> 00:20:08.100
  • BUT ONE DAY THAT SIN IS GOING TO BE GONE.
  • 00:20:08.110 --> 00:20:10.130
  • WE'LL NO LONGER HAVE BODIES THAT GET TIRED.
  • 00:20:10.140 --> 00:20:12.160
  • WE'LL NO LONGER HAVE SOURED RELATIONSHIPS THAT
  • 00:20:12.170 --> 00:20:14.220
  • CHARACTERIZE MANY WORKPLACES.
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.190
  • WE'LL NEVER HAVE ANY MORE GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS.
  • 00:20:16.200 --> 00:20:18.250
  • WE'LL BE ABLE TO WORK AS GOD INTENDED US TO WORK
  • 00:20:18.260 --> 00:20:21.260
  • AND IT WILL BE SATISFYING.
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.260
  • AND THOSE WHO DO WELL AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF
  • 00:20:23.270 --> 00:20:25.290
  • CHRIST ARE GOING TO HAVE THESE
  • 00:20:26.000 --> 00:20:27.060
  • EXTRA POSITIONS OF AUTHORITY.
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:29.100
  • THERE'S ONE POSSIBILITY, ONE OUTCOME IS REWARD;
  • 00:20:29.110 --> 00:20:33.200
  • BUT THERE'S ANOTHER POSSIBLE OUTCOME HE SPEAKS
  • 00:20:33.210 --> 00:20:35.180
  • OF IN VERSE 15, AND THAT IS LOSS.
  • 00:20:35.190 --> 00:20:39.040
  • IF ANY MAN'S WORK IS BURNED UP,
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:41.260
  • VERSE 15, HE SHALL SUFFER LOSS;
  • 00:20:41.270 --> 00:20:47.010
  • BUT HE HIMSELF SHALL BE SAVED,
  • 00:20:47.020 --> 00:20:49.060
  • YET AS THROUGH FIRE.
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:51.100
  • OR ANOTHER WAY WE WOULD SAY IT: HE'LL BE SAVED BY
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:53.190
  • THE SKIN OF HIS TEETH, BUT HE WILL SUFFER LOSS.
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:57.110
  • I WANT YOU TO NOTICE WHAT PAUL SAYS,
  • 00:20:57.120 --> 00:20:58.250
  • NOT WHAT ROBERT SAYS, WHAT PAUL SAYS.
  • 00:20:58.260 --> 00:21:03.060
  • SOME CHRISTIANS ARE GOING TO EXPERIENCE REAL,
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:07.150
  • TANGIBLE, MEASURABLE LOSS AT THE JUDGMENT SEAT OF
  • 00:21:07.160 --> 00:21:12.190
  • CHRIST WHEN THEY REALIZE WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:21:12.200 --> 00:21:15.100
  • THEIRS HAD THEY BEEN MORE FAITHFUL TO CHRIST.
  • 00:21:15.110 --> 00:21:20.090
  • NOW I CAN HEAR THE HOWLS OF PROTEST.
  • 00:21:20.100 --> 00:21:22.290
  • PEOPLE SAY: WAIT A MINUTE PASTOR,
  • 00:21:23.000 --> 00:21:25.180
  • WHAT YOU'RE DESCRIBING IS HORRIBLE.
  • 00:21:25.190 --> 00:21:27.090
  • THE IDEA THAT THERE WOULD BE REAL AND LASTING REGRET
  • 00:21:27.100 --> 00:21:30.050
  • IN HEAVEN, HOW DOES THAT SQUARE WITH THE FACT THAT
  • 00:21:30.060 --> 00:21:33.060
  • HEAVEN IS GOING TO BE A PLACE INEXPLICABLE JOY,
  • 00:21:33.070 --> 00:21:36.080
  • AND YET YOU'RE SAYING IT'S ALSO GOING
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:37.180
  • TO BE A PLACE OF REGRET?
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:39.240
  • WELL THE FACT IS JOY AND REGRET CAN
  • 00:21:39.250 --> 00:21:43.150
  • COEXIST WITH ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:21:43.160 --> 00:21:45.150
  • ONE DOESN'T NECESSARILY EXTINGUISH THE OTHER.
  • 00:21:45.160 --> 00:21:48.140
  • JOY, ETERNAL JOY THAT WE HAVE ESCAPED THE FLAMES OF
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:52.100
  • HELL BECAUSE OF WHAT CHRIST HAS DONE FOR US,
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:56.010
  • BUT FOR SOME THERE'LL BE A SADNESS,
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:21:58.030
  • A REGRET, A LOSS AS WE REALIZE WHAT COULD HAVE
  • 00:21:58.040 --> 00:22:02.190
  • BEEN OURS HAD WE BEEN MORE FAITHFUL TO CHRIST.
  • 00:22:02.200 --> 00:22:06.140
  • NOW I REALIZE WE NEED TO BE BALANCED HERE.
  • 00:22:06.150 --> 00:22:09.040
  • AS SOMEBODY SAID: TO OVERDO THE SORROW ASPECT
  • 00:22:09.050 --> 00:22:12.210
  • OF HEAVEN IS TO TURN HEAVEN INTO HELL.
  • 00:22:12.220 --> 00:22:16.200
  • BUT TO IGNORE THE REALITY OF REGRET IN HEAVEN IS TO
  • 00:22:16.210 --> 00:22:20.210
  • MAKE OBEDIENCE TO CHRIST IN THIS LIFE INCONSEQUENTIAL.
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:25.260
  • BIBLE SAYS WHAT WE DO NOW DOES MAKE AN ETERNAL DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:22:25.270 --> 00:22:30.280
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THERE ARE REAL,
  • 00:22:30.290 --> 00:22:33.010
  • MEASURABLE REWARDS AWAITING THOSE
  • 00:22:33.020 --> 00:22:35.180
  • WHO ARE OBEDIENT TO CHRIST.
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:37.260
  • AND IT'S THE REALITY OF THOSE REWARDS THAT CAUSED
  • 00:22:37.270 --> 00:22:40.260
  • PAUL TO WRITE THESE WORDS, "THEREFORE,
  • 00:22:40.270 --> 00:22:44.050
  • THEREFORE WE HAVE AS OUR AMBITION WHETHER AT HOME
  • 00:22:44.060 --> 00:22:48.100
  • OR ABSENT TO BE PLEASING TO GOD."
  • 00:22:48.110 --> 00:22:50.130
  • WHY?
  • 00:22:50.140 --> 00:22:51.190
  • "FOR WE MUST ALL APPEAR BEFORE THE JUDGMENT
  • 00:22:51.200 --> 00:22:56.090
  • SEAT OF CHRIST THAT EACH MAN MAY BE RECOMPENSED FOR
  • 00:22:56.100 --> 00:23:00.170
  • DEEDS IN THE BODY ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS
  • 00:23:00.180 --> 00:23:03.230
  • DONE; WHETHER THEY BE GOOD OR WORTHLESS."
  • 00:23:03.240 --> 00:23:08.260
  • MUSIC
  • 00:23:08.270 --> 00:23:15.290
  • WHILE ALL BELIEVERS ENTER THE SAME HEAVEN,
  • 00:23:16.000 --> 00:23:19.030
  • NOT ALL WILL RECEIVE
  • 00:23:19.040 --> 00:23:20.100
  • THE SAME RECOGNITION AND REWARDS!
  • 00:23:20.110 --> 00:23:23.060
  • PERHAPS YOU'RE SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT REWARDS IN
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:25.200
  • HEAVEN WILL SEPARATE THE FAITHFUL FROM THE COMPLACENT.
  • 00:23:25.210 --> 00:23:29.220
  • SO LET ME ENCOURAGE YOU TO BECOME INTENTIONAL ABOUT
  • 00:23:29.230 --> 00:23:33.050
