GOD’S REWARD SYSTEM II (June 09, 2019)

AVENUES OF REWARD

God is a God of ways: There is the way to God’s rewards

Isa 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Re 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

Your work in the kingdom determines the rewards that come your way. God has a reward system in this life.

God is a rewarder

Hebrew 11:6 ….that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Not those who just seek Him but those who “diligently seek Him”. Those who have “left all” as Peter said – Luke 18:28

Those who have “left all” for the kingdom of God’s sake, God’s reward system is established based upon your service in the kingdom; that is sowing kingdom based seeds.

The real problem is that many of us are in the kingdom but have not really “left all” The time has come for you to connect with God’s reward system. Heavenly Account Your service and giving produces an “account with God in heaven”

Lu 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

Apostle Paul also said the same thing

Philippians 4:17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

These means you have to keep filling your heavenly account

Mathew 6:19 – 20
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

That means through your service and giving to the Lord, you’re; You are laying up for yourself, in your heavenly account. You can cash in that reward during times of need. Your heavenly bank is waiting for you to cash in and make a demand on your deposit. Call on God and make a demand on your account in heaven!

Mordechai
Es 6:1 – 3
1 On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles, and they were read before the king. 2 And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus. 3 And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king’s servants that ministered unto him, There is nothing done for him.

Did you hear that?
What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? May the God of heaven trouble the sleep of kings in your favour. May you also be “that man whom the King delights to honour”

Listen to Nehemiah
Neh. 13:14, 31
14 Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.
It is your time.
31 And for the wood offering, at times appointed, and for the firstfruits. Remember me, O my God, for good.

If you’ve been serving Him faithfully and a need arises, you can call on Him to remember your service.

Avenues of Reward
Waiting for a place to change you, you will wait forever. Knowing what it takes to connect reward in your stewardship is very important.

  • Service
    We serve God who is a rewarder. – Heb. 11:6

Ex 23:25 – 26
25 And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. 26 There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

This means God only rewards service rendered. Effective stewardship is the gateway to rewards in the kingdom. Rewards also stand as the catalyst for continued service. Serving God is a missing key in our walk with Christ.

Many claim they are serving Him, but where is the proof of service

James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Deuteronomy 11:13 – 15 13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul. 14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. 15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.

  • To love and demonstrate that love through service, THAT
    – I will give you the rain of your land in his due season
    – I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full

You will be fruitful and satisfied in all things. It is leaving it all for Him in service and it is this kind of service that brings honour. To follow Him means to do as He did, To go where He went, To meet whom He met. To preach what He preached, To serve and He served

That is why He said

John 15:16
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

That is whatever you want will be your reward. This is your season of reward.

Jesus is Lord
