(By Dale Fletcher) Will God someday judge and reward you accordingly as to how you cared for your body during your life on earth? I believe He might. This is a topic I’ve never explored or written about, but it came to me when I was spending time with God this morning. The Bible tells us in several places that we will all stand before the judgment seat of Jesus (2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 22:12; Rom. 14:10 and Eph. 6:8).

“For we must all appear before the judgment-seat of Christ, that each one may receive his recompense in the body, according to what he has done, whether it was good or bad” (2 Cor. 5:10). We will be held accountable for the good and the bad things that we have done, or not done, in our lifetime. This judgment is not to determine where we will spend eternity—in heaven or in hell—but this will be to determine the rewards that believers will receive for all eternity in heaven. CONTINUE
