The King Judges Us, Part 1 of 4

June 28, 2012
The Bema seat was an elevated platform in ancient Corinth where the judges sat. Bema is the word that Paul uses when referring to the Judgment Seat of Christ. In Corinth, the Bema was outside and public — and so may be a Christian’s account at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

The bodies of untold millions of believers in Jesus lie in graveyards all over Earth. One day, those graves will open and the dead in Christ will rise when Jesus returns. Those who are alive at the time of His coming will join them moments later. We’ll discuss more about a future day when our bodies will be made immortal.

The hearts of the disciples were heavy on the night their Master told them of His impending death and resurrection. He told them that when He returned, He would receive them unto Himself, that where He was, they would be also. As the young church was forming, many were wondering when He would return. They didn’t know that over two millennia would pass.

Somewhere there is a Doomsday clock that measures how close we are to annihilating ourselves. But what most people don’t realize is that another clock is ticking, and one day, Jesus will return to Earth. Man’s failed history will be wrapped up when the King of Kings takes charge. Today we lift our eyes to the horizon.

Eons of time, the phrase, in the Greek language, means “into the ages of the ages.” We invest heavily in the few years we have on Earth. But most of us invest very little in the life that follows. Jesus made it clear that we need to reset our priorities and live with the view of eternal life in front of us.

The parables of Jesus cut to the deepest level of human motivation. In the story of the rich fool, greed was one issue, but covetousness was another. None of us is free from the grip of wanting more. If this sin blocks our view of what’s really important, our very eternity is at stake. What we can take home from a parable is as meaningful today as it was when spoken two millennia ago.

Most Americans have more stuff stashed in their garages and closets than they will ever use. Jesus told of a man who had too much stuff and needed bigger barns to hold it all. The man’s error was assuming his stuff was all he needed. The man didn’t realize that his deepest need was for something his barns could never hold.

There is no U-Haul following your hearse to the cemetery. As the saying goes, “you can’t take it with you.” Jesus told a story about a man who had a lot, but wanted a lot more. It was this man who said “eat, drink and be merry.” The parable is chilling, because that night his life was demanded of him. If there’s one thing you want to get right, it’s where you will spend eternity.

In a shaky market, people wonder where they can place money to get a decent return. These days, options are few. Jesus taught a lesson on ultimate investments in a parable recorded in Luke’s gospel. He counsels believers to invest in God’s kingdom, because only in eternity will the true interest rate be on display.

Common investment advice is to buy low and sell high. In other words, get as much financial return as possible. In good times, stocks and bonds run hot. In shaky times, silver and gold look safer. Jesus taught that the best possible return can only be gotten by investing our money for eternal dividends. Today we’ll discuss the rationale behind the statement, “you can take it with you.”

A wealthy man had a manager he decided to fire. Before he left, the manager cut some deals with his master’s creditors. The deals were meant to curry favor so that the manager would have options once his job ended. Jesus made this scenario the subject of a parable about investments, and today, we’ll decipher why Christ commended a man who acted improperly.
