"His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.' " - Matthew 25 V23
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to those who have loved His appearing." - 2 Timothy 4 V7
Every person will be judged by God. Christians will have to give an account of their works after they have come to know Christ. Those who did not live their lives for the Lord will regret but those who lived for the Lord and have been a witness for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ among people shall be rewarded. Even those who eagerly wait for His appearing shall be rewarded. Our works will be refined as gold and silver is refined in fire. So, let us live this life for the Lord and represent Him in our ways. Let us finish the race and be overcomers in Christ. Time is short so let us make use of every opportunity that is before us to be a witness of the Word of God. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
