Great Is Thy Reward!

Text: Matthew 5:12 “Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.”

This is a great Bible truth.

God will someday reward His people for their faithfulness,
for their service,
for their suffering,
for their soul winning,
and for their loving the appearing of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Some people may ask “Are there differences in rewards in Heaven?

Will some enjoy Heaven more than others?

Oh Yes! Some will enjoy Heaven more than others.

Then the question comes, “Will some suffer more in Hell than others?

Oh Yes!

Heaven is not our Reward!

Example: He has gone to his reward.

Heaven is God’s Gift by Grace. You can’t earn it.

Ephesians 2:8,9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

I. Earthy Rewards
Read Matthew 6:1 – 8
A. Blessings From Above
B. Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
C. Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”
D. Malachi 3:8 – 11 “Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. 9Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 10Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. 11And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.”

II. Heavenly Rewards
2 Corinthians 5:10 “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.”
A. Eternal
B. Matthew 6:19 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
C. Crowns
1. The Christians' reward is sometimes mentioned as a "prize" (I Corinthian 9:24), and sometimes as a "crown" (I Corinthians 9:25).
2. Five Crowns may be won:
(1) Incorruptible crown - for those who discipline the body, as an athlete to achieve great things for God. I Corinthians 9:25-27.
(2) Rejoicing - for those who win people to Christ. I Thessalonians 2:19,20.
(3) Life - for those who love Christ enough to endure temptation. James 1:12; Revelation 2:10.
(4) Righteousness - for those who love Christ's second coming. II Timothy 4:8.
(5) Glory - for pastors and teachers who faithfully feed the flock of God. I Peter 5:2-4.

Other rewards available are :
(1) Our Lord's approval - "Well done thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things." Matthew 25:21.
(2) Ruler over many things. "If we suffer with him, we shall reign with him." II Timothy 2:12. "They shall reign for ever and ever." Revelation 22:5.
(3) Authority over 10 cities, 5 cities etc. "Thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over 10 cities." Luke 19:17.
(4) Inherit all things. "He that overcometh shall inherit all things". Revelation 21:7.
We may sit with Christ in His Throne. Revelation 3:21.
He has made us unto our God Kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. Revelation 5:10
(5) His servants shall Serve Him. "They shall see his face". Revelation 22:3,4.

III. Is It Possible to Loose Some Of Your Rewards? Oh Yes!
It Is Possible!
A. 1 Cor. 3:14 “If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
