Rewards for good works

It intrigues me how often Christians are reluctant to talk about the possibility of rewards in heaven. it has almost become one of those taboo subjects...maybe because we think it may impinge on the view that salvation is given us as a gift. it doesn't of course, nor does it impinge on us being "unprofitable servants". It is in fact thoroughly Biblical.

The new Testament is full of promises of rewards in heaven for those who have served well. Just read the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5 -7) and you'll see what I mean.

So I was encouraged to read this item:

God loves to reward us. To deny it is to deny the generosity and justice of our wonderful Father.
