In order to get rewarded from God the right way; we have to do things the right way. God can use whoever and make anyone something. But in order for whomever He uses to get rewarded in a good way, consistently, for being used; they have to do what He intends for them to do, a certain and right way(1Cor.9:16-18).
God’s reward system could be quite different from the way things work else where. It can even be quite different from what we may think it should be. But we must understand, first off, God does as He pleases, and He will reward that way as well. So it’s on us to strive to find that right way in Jesus, and walk in it. And also we have to and should be grateful for whatever the good reward may be, that He may give us(Matt:20:1-16).
There are different types of rewards it seems, and some may be greater than others, when it comes to laboring in the Kingdom of God. But we must all strive to labor the right way, with the right intentions, so we can at least receive our good portion. Because we don’t want to be deceived or wrong, thinking we are doing the right thing; only to find out we were in the wrong. Because there will be a reward for that as well(Matt.25:14-30). Lord, have mercy.
That goes for each and every one of us. If we aren’t doing things the right way, the reward we receive, may not be something we want or something good. So let’s strive our best to do things the right way, God’s way. That way we can ensure that we shall reap the harvest God has promised those who do His Good Will(2John1:8).
Because it will do us no good to be laboring for the Lord and trying to obtain things the wrong way. No matter if we get some things accomplished or not. Whether a little or a lot. If it’s not done the way He’s designed it to be done, the right way, we won’t receive a good reward in the end(2Tim.2:5).
So let’s strive our best to get all our good rewards from God, as He wants us to. Because no matter what they may be. If they’re from Him, to His faithful obedient children, they will be good(Jam.1:17-18). By the grace of God. In Jesus name.
