I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is!

Will Christ followers be judged?


Since the sins of believers were washed away by Christ on the cross, how can believers be judged?

Good Question. Since we are justified by faith and not by works, how can we be judged at all? 2 Corinthians 5:10 is telling us of the importance of living according to what we believe. While salvation is a matter of faith, other eternal rewards depend on our faithfulness. See
1 Cor.3:8 & 3:13-15. We believers are judged righteous in Christ, but will also be rewarded in accordance with the things we do while in the body, whether good or bad. It does matter what we do. God expects our behavior to reflect Him in us. The details of this judgment are not important. What is important is that the Judge is fair and will reward us as we deserve.

Relevant Scripture

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
2 Corinthians 5:10

Be blessed,
