2 Corinthians 5:10 says that we will receive what is due us for what we have done on earth. Does this mean that we are judged based on merit? What does it mean that we will be rewarded for our good deeds?
This article looks at our heavenly rewards as a gift of grace from God, and not because of our merit. The author looks at this reward as encouragement to the Christian, and discusses the question whether there will be different degrees of reward in heaven.
