Hymn No. 41, “Let Zion in Her Beauty Rise,” was our opening hymn today. I was stirred by the reference to the great Millennium when the Lord returns and Enoch’s group rejoins us. What glorious days are ahead! Truly eye hath not seen nor ear heard the wondrous things that the Lord has prepared for those who wait for Him.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the duties and trials of daily life, but there will be dramatic and glorious changes one day. When the Lord returns, may we all still be on the winning team and take part in all the joy and in the glorious things that will be revealed. May we not let the little diversions and trite temptations of the present distract us from the future blessings ahead. May we be strong and faithful, that when the Lord returns, He will welcome us as friends and faithful servants. We have no need to be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
