Man has a day now, which Paul calls ‘man’s day’ (1 Cor. 4.3 [margin]), in which he gets on his throne bench and usurps a judgment over Christ and His ways; but God has a day in which He will set everything straight, and His judgment shall stand. And the saints shall have their time, when they shall sit in judgment on those that judge them now (1 Cor. 6.2). Christ will rule in the midst of His enemies (Psa. 110.2), even in the midst of our hearts.
Richard Sibbes, The Bruised Reed (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 2011), 120.
