Rewards for Obedience To God

The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?
“I the Lord search the heart
and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
according to what their deeds deserve.”

Jeremiah 17:9-10

How should we conduct ourselves? According to this verse, Jesus searches our heart and looks into our mind and then, rewards us based on how we live our lives.

Jesus also rewards us based on our works. It’s not good enough to just pray, we need action to accompany prayer.

Abraham was justified by works when he lifted up Isaac on the altar and was credited with righteousness.

James 2:26

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Being obedient to God in the manner we conduct ourselves is key to knowing your saved. Faith is critical because it’s the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Works is faith in action.

This week, pray with someone and ask them if they need help with anything.
