Deuteronomy 32:15-52; Hosea 2:1-3:5 ; Luke 17:20-18:14
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:18
If we were to compare our suffering with the suffering of our Saviour, there would be a wide gap indeed. Oh how He suffered for us! But His sufferings are past and now we wait to share an incomparable glory with Him. What glory that will be! “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you” (1 Peter 5:10). May this be our occupation until He comes. —Harold G. Smith
When I shall reach the more excellent glory,
And my trials are passed, I shall be like Him, O wondrous story!
I shall be like Him at last. —W. A. Spencer
