What do you know about the Judgment Seat of Christ? Dec 8, 2004
The answer is probably not enough. I heard an interview with Jamie Lash on the radio and was intrigued. Actually, I felt a certain fear & trepidation about reading the book, because I knew it would require a complete change of perspective & immediate action. Many people get laxidasical with the fact we are saved by grace and our works don't get us into heaven! That is true, but do our works matter--Yes, indeed! This book will help get a Christian past having mere "fire insurance," bur realizing we need to serve Christ everyday and we WILL be judged for our works while in the body. This will be a judgment of rewards or lack of rewards, but an extremely important judgment nonetheless. If you're considering buying the book, please do so, because it contains important truths not found in many other Christian books!
After the gospel, this is THE most important truth to know Mar 12, 2001
I believe that after THE GOSPEL, This is THE most important truth that anyone can ever hear. In fact, I often describe it as "THE GOSPEL FOR CHRISTIANS." If believers really embrace this extremely motivation truth, their lives will never be the same again.
Since reading "This Was Your Life?" in 1999, there is not a day that I do not think about living for THAT DAY instead of just TODAY. I have now bought over 400 copies of the book and about 20 copies of the video series.
I have distibuted these copies resulting in overwhelmingly positive and grateful responses. Most people have had similar reactions to mine and have in turn ordered more books to give to the believers they knonw. There is just no way to measure the far-reaching impact this book will have on eternity.
This book has significantly changed where I seek reward! Apr 16, 1999
This book should be read by every follower of Christ. It motivates the reader toward significant change. I wish I had this guide much earlier in my Christian walk. I would not have wasted so many years seeking man's approval and praise. I am now focused on working for Christ's honor and glory.
The authors guide the reader through a personal soul-searching exercise that peels away all self-deception until the individual's true core is exposed. Then, they guide the reader to an uplifting knowledge of how to truly follow Christ. The book is filled with practical instruction on how to change.
I have already given away ten copies to friends. After reading it, several have said to me, "This is exactly what I have been looking for!"
This is a wonderful book Nov 12, 1998
This is a wonderful book! It's an urgent warning and a compelling call to understand our accountability for our lives. It is thoroughly referenced, comprehensive, and slyly humorous. This slim volume powerfully guides the reader into searching personal reflections and into a deeper relationship with God. Rick Howard is Pastor of Peninsula Christian Center in Redwood City, California. The Judgment Seat of Christ is Rick's lifetime message which he has given in 80 countries around the world. Jamie Lash is Director of Student Development at a Christian university in Dallas, Texas. He leads seminars and writes on Christian growth. Jamie is perhaps best known in the Washington, D.C. area for his popular "Victory Seminar" program wihch was heard on WCTN radio. In 1987, Jamie saw Rick Howard's video on The Judgement Seat of Christ. He says it was the most powerful lesson he had ever heard. He contacted Rick to see if he had written a book on the topic. That conversation led to a collaboration of the two men. Heavenly rewards is a neglected subject and many believers know little of what the Bible teaches about it. But just imagine meeting the King of Kings and Lord of All with every thing you ever said, or did, or even thought, exposed in His glorious light! This Was Your Life explores what scripture tells us of the hereafter while guiding us to a more abundant life here and now. The 15 short chapters have titles such as "Encountering the Christ of Revelation,""Stay Out of His Chair,""Olympic Motivation," and "Seizing the Time." Each chapter is unique and nourishment for the spirit. The discussion questions included make this gem of a book an excellent choice for a family or study group to read together. If you long to hear Jesus say, :"Well done, good and faithful servant" -- this book is for you. If you plan to read only one spiritual book this year, This Was Your Life should be the one to read and reread.
Read it if you dare!!! Nov 4, 1998
The author had a vision of the Judgment Seat of Christ over 30 years ago and it shows! Not many have preached or written about this crucial-to-know topic from the Bible. Howard's thesis is that we're saved by grace, but judged by what we did with that grace here on earth. He backs up his views thoroughly from a plethora of scriptural references. No Christian can read this book and not be challenged to live a more responsible life for Christ. Every reader will want to evaluate their choices made here on earth in light of the account they will be required to give at the judgment seat.
