Faith Is Emulating Christ On The Road To True Glory
We have to endure the fact that our reward will only come in heaven.
To see the wicked continually being rewarded is again grave injustice, for it runs counterto the law of the universe. The perversion of the earthly reward system is prevalent everywhere. In companies and even in charity organizations, the ones who truly contributed are swept aside in preference for the loudest mouth. The salary gap between the CEO and the general workers is obscene and unjust. While workers sweat it out, the manager presents the fruit of the department to his own credit. The author of Ecclesiastes put it this way,
There is another evil (injustice) I have seen under the sun. Kings and rulers make a grave mistake when they give great authority to foolish people and low positions to people of proven worth. I have even seen servants riding horseback like princes—and princes walking like servants. Ecclesiastes 10:5-7
Jesus’ promotion to the right hand of God shows us the inevitability of perfect justice. The faithful will be rewarded and the wicked will be destroyed. However, the vindication of the righteous will only happen on the day of judgment. Therefore, believers must wait and endure injustice in expectation of perfect justice and vindication in heaven.
