God the Father: Rewarder
God the Father loves to reward His children. Starting with His Son. Nobody bestows greater rewards than God. He is the Rewarder. Jesus, of course, as His Son, knows this better than anyone. Jesus lives to please His Father, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Again, it is the plain teaching of Scripture. There is nothing that delights a dad’s heart more than to see his kids take on some great, impossible task and then come through with flying colors. It’s enough to make you burst with pride; you want to give your kids the keys to the kingdom. Which is exactly what God the Father did. He rewarded His Son’s obedience by exalting Him above all creation. His Name is above all others and everything is under His feet, save for the Father Himself. How’s that for a serious reward? And notice, the Son follows in His Father’s footsteps: Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done (Revelation 22:12). Being a faithful son like Jesus means being faithful in your calling throughout your lifetime. Then you can claim your Father’s reward as given through His Son when He returns.
Please get this. The Father’s reward reflects His Heart, because He has given each of us a specific calling and a specific destiny with the promise of serious punishment or awesome reward, depending upon whether or not we fullfill that destiny. In other words, real reward involves real risk. God, like any good Dad, invests His children with real authority and responsibility, just as He has done with Jesus. To him who overcomes and does My will to the end, I will give authority over the nations… just as I have received authority from my Father (Revelation 2:26-27). We can either use our authority and power to bring people to the Father or we can screw around and bury our talents and let our spiritual children go to hell. Either way you will get what’s coming to you…
