For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
Those who love the Lord will not fear His judgement because they can hope in His grace.
- The Lord manifests Himself as a God of love and a God of judgement.
- All human beings will be judged on the basis of their works – some at the return of Christ and others at the Last Judgement.
- Those who love God do not need to fear His judgement, but can instead hope justifiably in His grace.
