For every kindness given, for every mercy bestowed,
for every demonic persecution and slander endured,
for every forgiveness extended, for every evil that was
overcome with good, for every injustice or evil that was
met with authentic, and sensitive compassion, for every tear
that was tendered with Christ’s love, for every soul that is won to
Jesus Christ, for any and all deeds small or great done for the
glory of God, for all of this there is laid up for the redeemed
inconceivable rewards in Heaven. And yet for the Christian the
most blessed, precious reward of all will be seeing our beloved
Savior face to face and hearing our Redeemer give the highest
commendation of all, “Well done thou good and faithful servant,
enter now into your Heavenly home. You have fought a good fight.
You have finished your course. You have kept the faith. Welcome
home!” What a glorious day that will be for each and every one of us!
May this be the glorious commendation we all are striving towards!
