上帝的审判 [Judgement of God]

书卷:彼得前书(新约)
作者:彼得

彼得前书4章17节:“因为时候到了,审判要从上帝的家起首;若是先从我们起首,那不信从上帝福音的人将有何等的结局呢?”

今日默想:审判有先后之别,其结局也有程度之别。显然先受审者被惩罚的程度较轻,后受审者被惩罚的程度较重。我们宁可先受上帝在十字架上定罪的审判,而不愿受上帝将来在白色大宝座上的审判。我们宁可先受上帝在今世管教的审判,而不愿受上帝将来惩罚的审判。我们今天的受苦,若能为我们免去将来更大的苦楚,那是多么划算的事。相反的,我们今天的享乐,却叫我们失去将来更大的享受,那是何等大的损失。

Book: 1 Peter (New Testament)
Author: Peter

1 Peter 4:17 :“For the time has come for judgement to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

Today’s Meditation: There are different sequences of judgement, as well as different endings. Obviously, those who are judged first have lighter punishment, while those who are judged later have greater punishment. We rather have the judgement of God on the cross than His judgement on the great white throne in the future. We rather are punished earthly today, than being punished by God in the future. It is worthy to trade punishment in the future for suffering today. In another way, it is such a great loss to trade future’s enjoyment for today’s enjoyment.
