But he that does wrong shall receive for the wrong which he has done: and there is no respect of persons.

– Colossians 3:25

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Phrases such as “What you reap is what you sow” and “God is watching everything you do” tell us that: No matter who, as long as he has done unrighteous things, he will certainly suffer God’s just punishment, because God is righteous. This reminds me of the people of Sodom who were in enmity to God and destroyed by God in the end.

Sodom was an extremely evil city. With music and dancing night after night, its prosperity drove people in this city to fascination. They lived in passions and lusts and couldn’t extricate themselves. No one yearned for the light, much less was willing to walk out from the evil mire. The entire city was full of blood and murder. Moreover, when the people of Sodom saw God’s messengers, they did not ask whether they had come to spread God’s will. To the contrary, they brazenly harmed them without waiting for an explanation. Even though Lot begged them piteously and tried to give his two daughters in exchange, yet they still didn’t leave the two messengers alone. The Bible only recorded one case as such, but it fully exposed the true vicious nature of the people in Sodom. They saw nothing else worthwhile around them, ran amuck; they took pleasure in devouring and harming people, even they were God’s servants. It was precisely because the people of Sodom were supremely corrupted that in God’s eyes, the whole city of Sodom deserved to be cursed, detested, and even more be destroyed by God.

Just as God says, “A humanity had become corrupt to the extreme. They did not know who God was or where they had come from. If you mentioned God, these people would attack, slander and blaspheme. Even when God’s servants had come to spread His warning, these corrupt people not only showed no signs of repentance; they did not abandon their wicked conduct. To the contrary, they brazenly harmed God’s servants. What they expressed and revealed was their nature and substance of extreme enmity toward God. We can see that these corrupt people’s resistance against God was more than a revelation of their corrupt disposition, just as it was more than an instance of slandering or mocking stemming from a lack of understanding of the truth. Neither stupidity nor ignorance caused their wicked conduct; it was not because these people had been deceived, and it was certainly not because they had been misled. Their conduct had reached the level of flagrantly brazen antagonism, opposition and uproar against God. Without a doubt, this kind of human behavior would enrage God, and it would enrage His disposition—a disposition that must not be offended. Therefore, God directly and openly released His wrath and His majesty; this is a true revelation of His righteous disposition.”
