Judgement-Seat-of-Christ-Sermon-Title

“Knowing we will stand before God on that day should change the way we think about this day” –Kenneth Kuykendall

     The Bema Seat was an elevated place of judicial and official business in Greek cities. At the Bema Seat, athletes would be evaluated on how they played the Olympic Games. Paul had this place in mind when he wrote to the Corinthian believers. He said, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

     All believers will stand before God to give an account of their lives. We will not be judged for our sins at the Bema Seat; Christ judged our sins at the cross of Calvary. Rather, our works and service for the Lord will be judged. Our behavior, intentions, words, relationships, responsibilities, and compliance to God’s call will come under investigation.

     Knowing we will stand before God on that day should change the way we think about this day. In other words, when we face this day with that day in mind, our actions, affection, and attitude should change. We should live every day as though it is the only day to be examined at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Take inventory of this day, because on that day, this day will be examined.
