“For I, the Son of Man, will come in the glory of my Father with his angels and will judge all people according to their deeds.” - Matthew 16:27 NLT
Deeds fall into three categories. One is “brick deeds.” These evil acts layer into a high tower. We glory in the height of our works, only to find they are also our judgment as they come crashing down on us in the earthquake of God’s wrath. Then there are “kindling” deeds. Everything we lay on the foundation of Christ that does not honor and point people to Him is burned up (1 Corinthians 3:12, 15). The third is the “investment deed.” These are the enduring treasures we “lay up” in Heaven (Matthew 6:20) which determine our rewards in eternity.
