10 Say ['amar] ye to the righteous, [tsaddiyq] that it shall be well [towb]
with him: for they shall eat ['akal] the fruit [pariy] of their doings. [ma`alal] KJV-Interlinear
10 Say to
the righteous that it will go well with them, For they will eat the fruit of
their actions. NASB
The contrast between those who pursue Gods plan for their lives, versus those who pursue opposition to Gods plan.
The former receive Gods righteousness and the appropriate blessings that accompany obedience to the spiritual life, while the latter, the wicked, pursue things that destroy their own soul.
Even though pursuing the Christian life seems embarrassing to many, even though pursuing the Christian life is arbitrarily defined by many, even though pursuing the Christian life is rejected outright by many, their indifference or rejection or invention will result in their loss of blessing. And that loss is infinite.
For those few who pursue the Christian life as defined by God, which means growth and production through study, through understanding, through application of doctrine to ones daily life, then there will be great reward, phenomenal reward, 'they will eat,' for them both in time and in eternity.
That reward has already been established, has already been determined, and therefore is certain and guaranteed.
In Christ there is no loss, no uncertainty, but the confidence of Gods promise and guarantee.
You just need to make certain that you pursue your spiritual life as God has defined the process, and not by some invented process of your own that seems more convenient to you. Remember that sincerity and/or good intentions are not Gods plan, study and obedience are.
