Book's theological position:
We are saved by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone, apart from works, because of His atoning work: His death, burial, and resurrection for our sins. Once saved, we cannot lose our place as God's children in the coming everlasting kingdom. Why then do we have to get ready? Because we must all come before the judgment seat of Jesus Christ. There, He'll determine our rewards, as we see in the illustrations Jesus gives of a master rewarding or refraining from rewarding, faithful and unfaithful servants. As the servants were in character as the master returned, so in that character they were judged, whether faithful or unfaithful (See Matt. 25:14-30). The rewards are in addition to salvation, not a condition of it. The rewards are an encouragement to persevere in sanctification and Christ-likeness.
