Who does God reward?

From the inspired scriptures, it is clearly seen that God only rewards those who obey Him “for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6). One must believe (have faith) that God “is” and that God is the “rewarder”. Who does God reward? Does God reward everyone? No! Only those who seek after Him with faith, those striving “diligently” to know His will and really doing His will.

“… he who does the will of My Father in Heaven” (Matthew 7:21) will be saved.

“And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” (Genesis 5:24).

More deeper than majority in his generation, Enoch pleased God; he walked with God by faith “By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death and was not found because God had taken him; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” (Hebrews 11:5). Note these, that Enoch lived in obedience to God’s Word – he did what God commanded him to do; he obeyed God! He did not listen to the false teachers of his day.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6).

Faith in God is absolutely mandatory as the above scriptures teach, however, “faith only” will not save, because you’ve got the journey “walking with God” on which you will have to apply the faith in process . Note the examples of being justified, but not by faith only. (James 2:20-26).

If you already believe i.e. convinced that you have much faith in God already and diligently walking up to Him i.e. diligently seeking Him till you behold Him, I congratulate you. If not, “Repent and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38). The Lord will add the saved to His church. (Acts 2:47).
