Verse 10

grace

Verse 14

reward

God, in the N.T. Scriptures, offers to the lost, salvation, and, for the faithful service of the saved, rewards. The passages are easily distinguished by remembering that salvation is invariably spoken of as a free gift (e.g.) John 4:10; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8; Ephesians 2:9 while rewards are earned by works ; Matthew 10:42; Luke 19:17; 1 Corinthians 9:24; 1 Corinthians 9:25; 2 Timothy 4:7; 2 Timothy 4:8; Revelation 2:10; Revelation 22:12.

A further distinction is that salvation is a present possession Luke 7:50; John 3:36; John 5:24; John 6:47; John 6:47 while rewards are a future attainment, to be given at the coming of the Lord ; Matthew 16:27; 2 Timothy 4:8; Revelation 22:12.

reward 1 Corinthians 9:17; Daniel 12:3; 1 Corinthians 3:14

Verse 20

Verse 22
