This is a study of the coming event commonly called the “Judgment Seat of Jesus Christ.” This is an event which will take place immediately in connection with the return of the Lord Jesus (cf. Rev. 22:12). It is here that believer’s in Christ will be rewarded. Some will receive great reward while others will not. While no one can lose their salvation, the NT does present the possibility of the loss of reward. A number of matters are discussed, such as “what will be the basis of Christ’s evaluation?”; “do the results of this evaluation by Jesus have eternal consequences?”; “what are the rewards that are given?”; and “what place does my sin and failures have in all of this?” This subject is one of the great motivating and encouraging subjects given by Christ and the Apostles designed to help us live godly lives. Each of the chapters ends with several discussion questions.

“It is difficult to understand why a topic as potent as an appointment at Christ’s Judgment Seat is given so little treatment by preachers or publishers. Dr. Benware has seized the opportunity in this volume to enlighten and challenge Christians with their eternal moment of truth with Judge Jesus Christ.”
– Dr. W. Sherrill Babb, Chancelor of Philadelphia Biblical University
“The Believer’s Payday” is a book that every Christian should read. It provides a detailed but very practical look at the subject of future reward that is available to all of us. Dr. Benware provides a wonderful study of this important truth which is at the heart of the Christian worldview which is a “two-world view.” I have recommended that everyone in our church read it and I highly recommend it to everyone.”
