The Judgment Seat

This post is part of the Bible teaching track
 

You know, one day every believer will have to stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ. Okay, so what does that have to do with how we live our lives today?  We’re in Romans chapter 14 talking about, what the Greeks would call “The Bema Seat,” the Judgment Seat of God. 

Now this judgment seat becomes a very important part of the Christian life. Paul uses the example of this bema, this raised stepped platform–he uses it as an example of the fact that all of us must one day appear before a bema. It’s the Judgment Seat of Christ. And there are two passages in the Bible where Paul uses the word bema as a result of the Judgment Seat.

Romans chapter 14 at verse 10 he warned that they should not arrogantly judge one another, because every one of us must stand before the tribunal of God, the Judgment Seat of God.

And then in 2 Corinthians chapter 5, verse 10, one of the more popular verses, the merits of each person’s work–your work and my work–will be determined before the Judgment Seat of Christ.

I believe that the most important day in the future of every Christian alive today is not the day Jesus returns. I believe the most important day in our future is not the next election cycle in the United States. I believe the most important day in our future is the day we stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ–for this reason: Everything done in my life will be judged either acceptable or unacceptable at the Judgment Seat.

Now if everything I enjoy as a reward for all eternity is judged worthy at the Judgment Seat, don’t you think you ought to know now what Jesus is looking for then, rather than wait till then to find out?

How are you living your life today? Are you honoring the Lord? – Paul writes in Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
