The judgment!

** We were created with a purpose, and each one of us has a God-given plan for our lives. But unless our actions are in agreement with God’s plan for our lives, they will not abide the test of God’s fire **

2 Corinthians 5:10 New International Version (NIV)

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

Life For Today Study Bible Notes
Note 19 at 2 Corinthians 5:10: In the light of Paul wanting to please the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:9), he here turned his attention to a judgment seat before which all believers will stand. The Greek noun for “judgment seat” is “BEMA,” and was used frequently in the New Testament for a “platform...on which was placed a seat for an official. The BEMA was the platform from which orations were made (Acts 12:21) as well as the place where civil officials held a session to hear certain legal cases and render judgment in such cases” (Dictionary of New Testament Theology, Volume 2). This Greek word has used a total of twelve times in the N.T. (Matthew 27:19; John 19:13; Acts 7:5, 12:21, 18:12, 16-17, 25:6, 10, 17; Romans 14:10; and this verse).

Although Paul was clear that this is a judgment of our works done in the body, it is also true that Jesus bore in His own body all judgment due to our sins. Reward and loss are what Paul was speaking of in this passage

(see 1 Corinthians 3:11-15), 1 Corinthians 3:11
Note on 1 Corinthians 3:11
There is only one foundation to true Christianity: faith in Jesus and the salvation He provides. There aren’t multiple ways to God. Jesus is the only way, truth, and life (John 14:6). After true salvation, a Christian can get into error and still be saved as long as this foundation is sure. But those who don’t put their faith in the finished work of Christ but instead are using their own goodness as the foundation of their relationship with God are not truly saved.

1 Corinthians 3:12

Note 2 at 1 Corinthians 3:12: There is no great significance in the “gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, and stubble.” God’s Word has been compared to gold (Proverbs 8:10, 16:16; 2 Timothy 2:20; 1 Peter 1:7; and Revelation 3:18), but it is always superior to gold. It is not an exact comparison. Paul was simply illustrating that a person can build with good building materials that will last (gold, silver, precious stones) or inferior materials that will be burned (wood, hay, stubble).

1 Corinthians 3:13

Note 3 at 1 Corinthians 3:13: Paul was using a physical truth to illustrate a spiritual truth.
In building a house, there must not only be a good foundation, but there must also be good materials used to build on that foundation. In the spiritual realm, faith in Christ is our foundation. Once we are saved, we can either have works of the flesh (wood, hay, stubble) or works of the Spirit (gold, silver, precious stones).

** {2 Corinthians 5:10 (NIV)

10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

We as Christians will one day stand before the Lord for the purpose of receiving rewards (see note 6 at Matthew 10:42), and all our actions will be revealed, whether they were our own doings or directed by the Spirit of God. If they were spiritual (gold, silver, precious stones), we will be rewarded. If they were carnal (wood, hay, stubble), we will suffer loss (see note 6 at 1 Corinthians 3:15).

Note 4 at 1 Corinthians 3:13: Notice that the fire will reveal what “sort” our works are, not what size they are.
Most people today are preoccupied with the quantity of ministry instead of quality of ministry. Yet Paul said that the Lord is going to reward us based on how well we did, not how much we did.

In keeping with Paul’s illustration, some people will stand before the Lord with huge houses that will be reduced to rubble after God rejects the building materials they used (works of the flesh). Others who never gained acclaim here on earth because they never did any big, important works will be greatly rewarded because they faithfully fulfilled what the Lord called them to do (Luke 12:48).

1 Corinthians 3:14

Note 5 at 1 Corinthians 3:14: Those who were not governed by the Holy Spirit in their actions will see all their good works burned up on that day when we stand before the Lord and He tries our works. Those who acted only under the guidance of the Holy Spirit will find that their works will endure the test, and they will receive a reward.

Many people choose to do good things, thinking that God will be pleased.
But only our positive response to God’s direction (faith) is what pleases God (Hebrews 11:6). We were created with a purpose, and each one of us has a God-given plan for our lives. Unless our actions are in agreement with God’s plan for our lives, they will not abide the test of God’s fire.

1 Corinthians 3:15
Life For Today Study Bible Notes
Note 6 at 1 Corinthians 3:15: Paul’s whole parable is about Christians. He made that clear in 1 Corinthians 3:11 when he revealed that the foundation is Christ. Therefore, when he spoke of those who used the wrong building materials suffering loss, he was not speaking of them being damned. He went on to say here in this verse that they themselves will be saved.
He was describing Christians who lost their rewards because they acted from the flesh (see note 3 at Romans 7:18) instead of the Spirit. Does this mean that there will be some second-class citizens in heaven?
No! (See note 6 at Matthew 10:42.)
Andrew Wommack's Living Commentary.

** is not justification, which is God’s gift through Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9,
see note 5 at 1 Corinthians 3:14 and
note 6 at 1 Corinthians 3:15).
