Romans 2:6-7

Romans 2:6-7 — Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life.

The judgment for the unsaved will be before the Great White Throne where those who do not believe will receive differing degrees of punishment based on their knowledge and behavior.

The judgment for the saved will be at the Judgment Seat where believers will be rewarded according to their deeds.

Well doing — In this dispensation this means trusting Christ. Only what is done in Christ is good. The first step is faith. Then, and only then in Christ one can continue to do good.

Glory = rewards

Honor = God’s esteem

Immortality = should be translated incorruption. We already have immortality.

God would reward the good — if there were any. But in Romans 3:10, Paul says There are none righteous.
