What About Rewards?

Many Christian leaders and teachers are reticent to speak much about God regarding faithfulness because they fear people will become self-righteous, proud, and religiously competitive, trying to outperform one another. While this is a legitimate concern, the Bible teaches repeatedly that God does in fact reward the works of faithful believers as a way of encouraging them to persevere and holiness and faithfulness, knowing that the God who loves them sees and knows all and will reward every act of obedience.
