Q. I recently had a discussion with my wife about how my “works” will be rewarded in heaven. We are both born again Christians and believe faith in Christ is the only way into heaven. Since my wife and I are one flesh, will God offer His reward as a package deal?
A. Good question. All the Bible says is that in heaven people neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like the angels. (Matt. 22:30) I don’t think this necessarily indicates an end to relationships formed on Earth. More likely it just changes them for the better.
1 Cor. 4:5 says that at the Bema Seat each of us will receive our praise from God. This would seem to suggest that we receive personal rewards, as individuals.
