Those who have been once saved by Christ Jesus will not be judged for their sins, but all men will one day stand before the Lord in judgment. If not for sins, then for what shall true Christians be judged? They shall be judged for their works. (See I Corinthians 3:13 and II Corinthians 5:10).
Knowing that this day is coming, we who are the children of God through the new birth would be very wise to watch how we live, and what we do.
Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
II John, Verse 8
Earthly, temporal works earn earthly, temporal rewards. But faithful works which promote and build the Kingdom of God bring about full and eternal rewards.
