Is it good to obey God if you only want a reward in the end?


People may believe the gospel only because of the promised reward at the end. Is that enough to be qualified as good?

    How do you know when you have taken the "self" part out? I don't believe in Hell-everlasting Fire, which makes it easier to decide to serve God out of love rather than fear. Hell is temporary and I still ger a reward, Why else to obey than love then?

    Only sincere because there is something for them in the end? I don't understand.

    I love your called by the Holy Spirit explanations. It is the right of Every Disciple of Christ to know if his or her life is worthy of His Sacrifice and joint heir-ship. We will inherit all He has and know it before death by the Spirit of God.
