The Greatest Reward.


After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
Genesis 15:1

There is a trend in grammar schools and youth sports programs to award “participation” trophies, medals, certificates, or prizes to everyone — winners and losers alike. If you compete, you get a prize; no one goes away a loser.

There will be rewards in heaven as well, based on our faithfulness to Christ and His glory during our life on earth (1 Corinthians 3:11-15). But even if a Christian received no rewards for faithfulness at the Judgment Seat of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:10), there is one reward that every believer will receive: Christ Himself. Paul said that his greatest earthly ambition was to “gain Christ and be found in Him” (Philippians 3:8-9). He, and every true believer, will certainly gain Christ as his or her ultimate reward for following Him. Even though Abraham was a very wealthy man, God told him, “I am your … exceedingly great reward” (Genesis 15:1).

Regardless of what other stature we may attain on earth or in heaven, gaining Christ will be our “exceedingly great reward.” All other rewards pale in comparison.

Faith is to believe what we do not see, and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.
Augustine
