As “believers” we will face judgment from Christ. We know this. Have you ever considered what we will be judged on? It cannot be our sin. That was already judged. Galatians 1:3-4 and Romans 8:1 make that clear, at least to me. Then, if we understand 2Corinthians 5:10, and 11:1-5 in it’s proper context I think we know that when we as believers stand before Jesus Christ’s “bema” (judgment seat) it i…s for Him to judge our works. So we can receive our Heavenly rewards for what we did for God’s Kingdom while here on earth. Matthew 28:16-20 just seems to grow in significance doesn’t it? Our Heavenly rewards are being handed out right after the Rapture of the Church, while the Tribulation is in full swing on earth. Then in Revelation 20:11-15 we see the Great White judgment seat. This is where all whose names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be judged and thrown into the lake of fire for eternity. So, I say let’s all live today and every day like we intend to need and moving van for our rewards in heaven, not just a grocery bag! More important than even that lets make sure everyone we know, indeed, we meet can see Christ’s light in us, and Share the Gospel of Christ with them!! There is simply no more important “work” we can do!! The Good News just keeps coming. The “judgment seat” we have been taught to fear since childhood turns out to be a “reward center” for Christians!!
