Purpose of the Bema

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” 2 Cor. 5:10

Some say if you are too heavenly minded you are no earthly good. The truth of the matter is that we must be heavenly-minded if we want to be any earthly good.

Life needs purpose and if we drift or coast through life without purpose we will surely miss the goal Christ has called us to live.

Our Father has one purpose in all His ways and that is to conform us to the image (character) of His Son. This may explain our perplexities as to the past, it should control our behavior in the present, and be our guide for the future.

Many times we want Him to just explain the reason for the trials we pass through and give us all the details so we can understand what is happening and if He doesn’t we search for meaning and purpose.

Knowing the Father’s heart teaches us to be accountable to Him with eternal values in view. “Every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then each of us shall give an account of himself to God”

Today we look at the absolutes in Scripture that let us understand the purpose of the BEMA (The Judgment Seat of Christ) so we will live with heavenly vision and purpose.
