REMEMBER THE GLORY

Reading: 2 Thessalonians chs. 1 and 2

We have just sung: "Be careful for nothing, the Lord is at hand; Remember the glory, Remember the land. Be fervent in spirit, be instant in prayer, work out your salvation, With trembling and fear." We are heirs of a promise which is so great that it almost defies imagination. We have to pinch ourselves sometimes to believe it is true that we shall be, by the grace of God, transformed from this mortality, from this weakness, to ever-living beings, able to praise God and to see our Lord Jesus Christ in the beauty of eternal life. This is set before everyone of us by the grace of God. We remember these things with such a simple ceremony, just by partaking of bread and wine. This is so unlike what the world wants when they think of religion. They want pomp, they want ceremony. We do not. Yet we are the recipients of awesome, great benevolence which is centred upon you and me. We are known, we are carefully selected by God. That is a wonderful thing to contemplate.

When we endeavour to rise to this knowledge and hope that is set before us, when we think of the sacrifice and the courage of our Lord Jesus Christ, and what he endured, and what he achieved, only then can we in some measure appreciate what our heavenly Father has done for us. We think that it is by Divine grace that we are being led from a prison. It is not a prison that man would make with stones and iron bars.
