Rewards for the Saints
Have you ever sat down and listed all the blessing we will receive as a follower of Christ once we overcome the temptations of this life? It is a list of things we should look forward to and encourage ourselves when we feel down or beaten in this life. Only we can push back the negative thoughts that rise up in our minds. We have our part to play in casting down the lies and pushing away the darkness that is thrown upon us. Each time we focus on things from above we are washed clean and purified.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. (2)Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:1-2 KJV
Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22 KJV
Each time we draw near to God our hearts are sprinkled by the blood from an evil conscience and our bodies are washed with pure water.
Take a moment to review our rewards and thank the Lord for our blessings. He will be pleased with your gratefulness.
* The Rewards that Await You *
You will eat from the tree of life which is in the middle of God’s paradise.
He will give you a crown of life and you will not be hurt by the second death.
You will eat of the hidden manna, and he will give you a white stone, and in the stone a new name is written, which no man knows only you who receives it.
He will give you power over the nations, you will rule over the people in the kingdom of God with Jesus, he will give you himself as a reward.
He will clothe you in white for righteousness. He will not blot out your name from the book of life, and he will confess your name before the Father and his angels.
He will make you a pillar in the temple of my God, and you will not go out anymore: and He will write upon you the name of God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and he will write his new name on you.
He will grant you to sit with him in his throne, even as He (the Lord) also overcame, and is now seated with his Father in his throne.
Each one of these promises belong to you. Be strong in your faith and do not give up no matter what the devil throws your way. God bless you!
