Whom He justified, them He also glorified.”—Romans 8:30.
There is a precious truth for you who believe. You may be poor, or suffering, or unknown, but for your encouragement think about your “calling” and what comes from it, and especially the wonderful result written about in the above verse.. As surely as you are God’s child today, so surely shall all your trials soon be at an end, and you shalt be richly blessed. Wait awhile, and your weary head shall wear the crown of glory, and your tired hand shall grasp the palm-branch of victory. Don’t complain about your troubles, but rather rejoice that before long you will be where “there shall be neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain.” God’s fiery chariot is at your door, and you’ll be carried to glory in a moment. The everlasting song is on the tip of my tongue. The gates of heaven open for you. Don’t worry about failing to get into Heaven. If He has called you, nothing can separate you from His love. Distress cannot sever the bond; the fire of persecution cannot burn the link; the hammer of hell cannot break the chain. You are secure; that voice which called you at first, shall call you yet again from earth to heaven, from death’s dark gloom to immortality’s indescribable splendors. Rest assured, the heart of Him who has justified you beats with infinite love towards you. You shall soon be with the glorified, where your reward is; you are only waiting here to be made acceptable for the inheritance, and when done, the wings of angels shall carry you far away, to the mount of peace, and joy, and blessedness, where,
“Far from a world of grief and sin,
With God eternally shut in,”
you shall rest for ever and ever.
