Remember for my good, O my God, all that I have done for this people. —Nehemiah 5:19

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. —II Corinthians 5:10

            As followers of Jesus God is keeping track of our lives.  He knows all about us.  He knows the good we do and He knows the bad we do.  This is not for a scale to see if we have done enough good to be saved or enough bad to be condemned.  No, we could never be good enough to be saved and Jesus already took our condemnation at the cross. 

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.  If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.  If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.  If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames. —I Corinthians 3:11-15        

            Jesus said:

  • I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. —Revelation 2:2
  • I know your afflictions and your poverty–yet you are rich! I know about the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. —Revelation 2:9
  • I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first. —Revelation 2:19
  • These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. —Revelation 3:1 
  • I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. —Revelation 3:8
  • I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! —Revelation 3:15

Nothing escapes His notice.  He knows my name and everything about me… and you!

Dear Father may I just seek to be faithful to You to honor Your Name.  May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son.  May it be so!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haLkLDfLBok
