Is God Measuring Your Good Deeds or Bad Deeds?

Ecclesiastes 12.14 promises, God will bring every act to judgment, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil.

Omniscient is the word we use to describe God’s ability or character, for knowing all things. This is why He can command us to do good without making a show of it – to not let our right hand know what our left hand is doing, because He sees it, knows it and will one day reward it. God will bring all of our lives to light.

Those in Christ will have their evil deeds passed over because they have been covered by the blood of the Lamb. Those in Christ will have their good deeds exposed so that they can receive their eternal reward. The best work a Christian can do is to share the gospel so that people’s eternal destiny can be changed and that they too can have their evil deeds passed over and not held against them.

The non-Christian will have their evil deeds brought forth and will be judged and condemned for all eternity in the fires of hell. Their good deeds will be passed over for they will receive no reward for doing them since their evil deeds will keep them from living with God forever. The most evil thing a person can do is fail to love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and to love their neighbor as themselves.

Failure to obey God by surrendering to the Son of God as Savior and Lord is to ignore the will of God and miss the blessing of God, which is the passing over of our evil deeds through the blood of the Son shed for us. The All-Powerful, All-Knowing, All-Mighty God will judge every person from all time and all places: our eternal destiny will be determined by our relationship with God through Jesus the Savior.

Our deeds will be rewarded by God’s criteria and not our own.
