Romans 10:17-18 (NASB) – So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. But I say, surely they have never heard, have they?
Indeed they have; “Their voice has gone out into all the earth, And their words to the ends of the world.”
SEEK GOD'S REWARD (1 Corinthians 3:5-17, 1 John 2:15, Matthew 6:33, 1 Corinthians 3:11)Pastor James Reinebach, February 24, 2019
Part of the CHRISTIAN LIVING series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sometimes we question the fact that faithful service to Jesus is the best possible investment of self. But, rewards to believers are a very big thing to God. If Jesus takes note of even a gift of cold water in His name, what else will He reward?

1 Corinthians 3:5-17
5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. 10According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 16Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (KJV)
1 John 2:15
15Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (KJV)
33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (KJV)
1 Corinthians 3:11
11For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (KJV)
