RE: Psalms 10 - Does it pay to serve God?

in #steemchurch2 years ago

If you look at the New Testament you'll see that God rewards those who serve him. Our reward may be in the next world but we will be rewarded. But we should serve God out of love for him and gratitude towards him. Those of us who are saved have so much to be thankful for.

Sort:  

Absolutely. His followers will be rewarded beyond our understanding, that is crystal clear. The question is how do you define "reward", is it enough money in the bank to retire early? Is it toys, cars, technology at your beckon call? Or is it eternal closeness with the creator and source of all life, light, and joy? To come under His will and be filled by His fullness?

In truth ours is the only "reward" one could ever need, but that doesnt mean its the only desire/reward, one will ever want.

We want all sorts of things, good and bad.

We will be rewarded, and God will work all things for good of those who love and serve Him (Romans 8:28), but that doesnt mean life will be "rewarding" in the worldly sense... but then again, that shouldn't matter to us.
