Day 5: Accountability and Eternal Reward
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.2 Corinthians 5:10 (KJV)
Reflection: 2 Corinthians 5:10 speaks of the judgment seat of Christ, where believers will be held accountable. This isn’t a judgment of condemnation but of reward. It serves as a motivating reminder to live each day purposefully and righteously, understanding that our actions have eternal significance.
Illustration: Consider a student diligently preparing for exams, motivated by the knowledge that their effort will determine their future opportunities and successes.
Prayer: Lord, help us to live in the light of Your judgment seat, striving to please You in all we do. May our lives reflect the glory and grace You’ve bestowed upon us, as we await the eternal rewards You promise. Amen.
