This is speaking of reward that we receive for our work that we do for the Lord. Our work comes out of our faith. Our faith in Jesus Christ and our acceptance of the Gospel, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, is our salvation. We will not lose our salvation, but our loss, depending on our work, will be of rewards. So we are saved, but may have loss.
