Heavenly Oscars?

February 24th, 2013 Posted in sermons

The Oscars are on tonight.
There may be a global audience of 40 million people watching around the world.
We will all wait for those words: “And the Oscar goes to. . . ”
Personally I am rooting for Les Miserables for Best Picture.
Did you know there will one day be a “heavenly” awards-type ceremony too?
It will not be about acting but about more about being real, as in being a real follower of Jesus Christ.
This is called the Judgment Seat of Christ.
It is not a judgment about who gets into heaven (fact is, this even happens in heaven!)
This judgment, or giving out of rewards, is about how faithfully you served the Lord as a Christian.
To find out more, check out my message today at Harvest Riverside and Orange County: “The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.”
You can also watch the live or archived webcast of this message as well at www.harvest.org.

    The Bible talks about our receiving crowns. What’s even more glorious is that we will come in worship to Christ and lay down our crowns before him.

    By the grace of God, I will surely receive an award. Can’t wait to hear “Well done good and faithful servant.”
