Preached by Ps Michael Ridley on 18/07/2021
Did you know that there is more written about Jesus return than his first coming ?
There is a day coming when he will audit all his creation, including us all, in everything we have done. This is a sobering thought, so how should we live our lives knowing this truth that Jesus cleared stated?
Be blessed as we unpack these truths that can change the way we live, moment by moment.

2 Corinthians 5:10
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.
22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’
1 Peter 4:17-18
17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And,
“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved,
what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”[a]
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. (NIV)
21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.” (NIV)
21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” (NIV)
12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. (NIV)
1 Corinthians 9:27
27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. (NIV)
1 Corinthians 3:10-15
10 By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames. (NIV)
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (NIV)
