The Judgment Seat of Christ

2 Corinthians 5:9-11

Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 10 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. 11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.

Paul reminds the Corinthians that they must appear before the ‘judgment seat of Christ’ where good or bad stewardship will receive its just and appropriate rewards. With that accountability in mind, Paul persuades men to turn to Christ.
