It appears at first that to talk of God “rewarding” us for good works is a little presumptuous on our part. How could anything we do be worthy of a reward? Thankfully God does not deal with us according to strict justice. He deals with us according to a grace which stretches so far as to even reward us for our efforts towards goodness.

When you consider who we are by nature and who the most holy God is in his nature, it appears at first that talk of "rewards" from God is a little presumptuous on our part. We have already been ransomed by Christ - isn't it ungrateful to expect more? Mark Jones works through the biblical basis and references to good works and rewards, showing that the grace of God our loving Heavenly Father is stamped all over this doctrine.
I know myself and other Christians around me; we need all the motivation Scripture has to offer, and I'm grateful that Dr. Jones is on the case to help us reconsider God's promises to reward our good works done in Christ and the Spirit. This is a wise and careful work.
This book fills a great need in the church today and offers hope to those who wish to love the Savior who first loved them.
The Bible's language about the necessity of obedience is full, wide, and consistent. Dr. Jones has taken us a step beyond accuracy. He has shown us the way to love what we may have once feared.
