A glorious future

Some think that on the first day we’re converted we’ve got everything. To be sure, we get salvation for the past and peace for the present. 

But then there’s still the glory for the future in store. 

That’s what kept Paul rejoicing. He considered his afflictions, his stripes, and his stonings as nothing, compared to the glory that was to come. He considered those things nothing, so that he could win Christ. 

So when things go against us, let’s cheer up. Remember that the night will soon pass away, and the morning will dawn upon us. 

Death never comes there. It’s banished from that heavenly land. Sickness, pain, and sorrow are not permitted entrance to mar that grand and glorious home where we will live forever with the Master. 

God’s family will be all together there. 

It’s a glorious future, my friends! 

And it may be a great deal nearer than many of us think.
