His Kingdom of Glory
          The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom   1 Timothy 4:18
          Jesus Christ, the King of the Kingdom of Power and the King of the Kingdom of Grace, also has a heavenly kingdom, a kingdom prepared for us who here on earth are His own, a kingdom into which all those shall enter who here on earth have been in the Kingdom of Grace; when they leave the earth they shall enter this heavenly kingdom. This is called the Kingdom of Glory; for there is nothing but honour and glory. There we shall be wholly free of everything that here we call evil. There our prayer, "Deliver us from evil," will in fullest measure be granted. There shall forever be fullness of honour and glory such as we cannot even conceive of now. There our souls shall always be abundantly satisfied, rejoicing over all the gifts of heaven; and we shall never once grow weary of them, but shall always desire them anew, and there shall be ever new abundance. And so it shall be in all eternity. That will be our true home, purchased for us by the Saviour with His precious blood. There we shall enjoy real life graciously merited for us by Christ. Let your heart and mind be directed there! Who would continue to complain about the hardships of the journey since this is the goal? And the Saviour has promised, the King has assured us that He will bring us there. Doubt not! Say: "The Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom." Oh, your Saviour does not treat you frugally. Here He showers upon you the fullness of His grace, and there He will give you the fullness of His glory. Abide with Him, remain His own!
          PRAYER: - Oh yes, O great, rich, gracious, lavishly bountiful King, my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, give me all, yes, all Your grace and glory. I cannot comprehend it. But You have promised it. Oh, therefore give it to me, O Lord, my dear Saviour! Amen.
