I Corinthians 3:13 “Every man’s work shall be made manifest for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.”
All believers will be with Christ in the coming Kingdom, but only those who constantly choose obedience to Christ will inherit all the rewards the Lord has for them. We can’t lose our eternal life, our salvation, but we can lose out on our rewards and our position of authority in God’s future Kingdom by our lifestyle here and now.
2 John 8 warns us about this: “Watch out, so that you do not lose the prize for which we have been working so hard. Be diligent so that you will receive your full reward.”
Our inheritance (rewards, crowns, authority) in the Kingdom is conditional upon our spiritual walk here and now, not just our beliefs. Don’t forfeit your inheritance, for a little bit of the world today.
