Faith’s Checkbook

Are you ready

December 17
Nearest and Dearest Fellowship
So shall we ever be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:17)

While we are here the Lord is with us, and when we are called away we are with Him. There is no dividing the saint from His Savior. They are one, and they always must be one: Jesus cannot be without His own people, for He would be a Head without a body. Whether caught up into the air, or resting in paradise, or sojourning here, we are with Jesus; and who shall separate us from Him?
What a joy is this! Our supreme honor, rest, comfort, delight, is to be with the Lord. We cannot
conceive of anything which can surpass or even equal this divine society. By holy fellowship we must be with Him in His humiliation, rejection, and travail, and then we shall be with Him in His glory.
Before long we shall be with Him in His rest and in His royalty, in His expectation and in His
manifestation. We shall fare as He fares and triumph as He triumphs.
O my Lord, if I am to be forever with Thee, I have a destiny incomparable. I will not envy an
archangel. To be forever with the Lord is my idea of heaven at its best. Not the harps of gold, nor the crowns unfading, nor the light unclouded is glory to me; but Jesus, Jesus Himself, and myself forever with Him in nearest and dearest fellowship.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. (Revelation 21:5)

Glory be to His name! All things need making new, for they are sadly battered and worn by sin. It
is time that the old vesture was rolled up and laid aside, and that creation put on her Sunday
suit. But no one else can make all things new except the Lord who made them at the first; for it
needs as much power to make out of evil as to make out of nothing. Our Lord Jesus has undertaken
the task, and He is fully competent for the performance of it. Already he has commenced His labor,
and for centuries He has persevered in making new the hearts of men and the order of society. By
and by He will make new the whole constitution of human government, and human nature shall be
changed by His grace; and there shall come a day when the body shall be made new and raised like
unto His glorious body.

What a joy to belong to a kingdom in which everything is being made new by the power of its King!
We are not dying out: we are hastening on to a more glorious life. Despite the opposition of the
powers of evil, our glorious Lord Jesus is accomplishing His purpose and making us, and all things
about us, “new” and as full of beauty as when they first came from the hand of the Lord.
