Open Reward

Our open reward is peace with God and peace in the beloved. Of course, God is particularly lavish. He gives many, many more rewards. He blesses us beyond what we had hoped or thought. We gain new brothers and sisters. We gain new hope. We gain financial blessing. We gain spiritual strength, might in the inner man. There are many benefits that accrue to the Christian.

         But for the true believer peace and joy in Jesus are at the center of our great rewards. We can whether any storm. We can put up with any foe. We can stand on the rock that is Jesus because our sins are forgiven and we are invited into the presence of our Father in Heaven, forever. Forever in the presence of God, that is our greatest open reward.
