God's discipline in the kingdom | reward is judged by one's work | Watchman Nee

The Bible tells us that the Lord disciplines us because He loves us (Heb. 12:6). When man loves, he overlooks. But when God loves, He disciplines. When man loves, he is loose. But when God loves, He is serious. If God had not loved us, He would not have sent His Son to die for our sins on the cross. Similarly, if God does not love us, He would not discipline us. God’s disciplining love is the same as His saving love, which caused Him to send His Son to die for us on the cross. It was His love that caused His Son to die on our behalf. It is also His love that disciplines us. Every Christian knows that there is no contradiction between God’s discipline and God’s grace. On the contrary, God’s discipline manifests God’s grace. Although we have seen that a man cannot perish again after he is saved, we can never say that such a one will never suffer God’s discipline. Now the question is whether God’s discipline is confined to this age or whether it will be found in the coming age as well.
