2 Corinthians—We Have This Treasure…                                            July 15/16, 2017

“Made To Live Forever”

2 Corinthians 5:1-10

  

Humanity’s serious question:  What happens when I die?

 

“We have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands…so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.”   2 Corinthians 5:1,4  (NIV)

 

“We live by faith, not by sight.  We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.”  2 Corinthians 5:7-8  (NIV)

 

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”  2 Corinthians 5:10  (NIV)

 

Will there be rewards in heaven for followers of Jesus?

 

ACTION POINTS:

  1. Don’t fear death; is a transition to your real life with Christ.
  2. Use your gifts for Christ’s Kingdom, or lose them.
  3. Look forward to your reward for faithful service; it counts!
