The heavens and the earth were FINISHED, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended His work. (Gen. 2:1-2)
My meat is to do the will of Him that sent Me, and to FINISH His work. (John 4:34)
I have glorified Thee on the earth; I have FINISHED the work which Thou gavest Me to do. (John 17:4)
It is finished! It is finished!
    Who can tell redemption’s worth?
He who knows it leads the singing —
    Full the joy, as fierce the wrath.
Son of God! with joy we praise Thee,
    On the Father’s throne above;
All Thy wondrous work displays Thee,
    Full of grace and full of love!

Growing in Grace
“Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them” (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
Our verse for today has a most important bit of instruction for us; it tells us to remember our Creator when we are young. If you were to ask a large group of Christians how old they were when they got saved, you would almost always find that most of them accepted the Lord Jesus before they were 20 years old. Some get saved later, and some even get saved when they are very old. A man whom I knew about got saved a few years ago at the age of 96, but this is very rare. I had a good friend who got saved when he was about 65, but again, this is unusual.
Sadly, many young people today perhaps really intend to get saved, but they want to enjoy the pleasures of this world for a while. They do enjoy what the Bible calls “the pleasures of sin for a season,” but then eventually they get old. Then their bodies and minds start to fail, and they find they cannot enjoy those pleasures anymore. They have to say, as our verse says, “I have no pleasure in them.” But then, they have nothing else in which to have pleasure; their hearts are now empty. Perhaps you have seen this type of person in a nursing home, where older people live who need some extra care. Some of these people are very difficult to manage, for they are constantly frustrated when they can no longer enjoy things that they used to enjoy.
How much different it is for a Christian! Yes, a Christian’s body gets old too, and it cannot do the things it used to do. But Christians have Christ, and as Paul reminds us, “Though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day” (2 Corinthians 4:16). Perhaps you know someone like this too — someone whose body and mind are failing a little, yet he or she is very happy, and enjoying the Lord. People like this also enjoy the thought that, as they get older, they are only getting closer to their heavenly home. If anyone reading this is not saved, our verse today has good advice for you.

I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, … even the Spirit of truth. (John 14:16-17)
It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.1
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.2 – Ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.3 – The Spirit … helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.4
The God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.5 – Hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.6
Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.7

Comfort of the Scriptures
“The glory which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one” (John 17:22).
Who among God’s redeemed children can even faintly comprehend what it will be like when we are in glory with our blessed Lord, “when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe”? What will it mean when “there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away”? What will it be when we sing that “new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth”? No, we cannot even begin to comprehend what it will be, but by faith we “reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” at His coming. “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”
We shall see Him in His glory,
And like Him we then shall be,
To sing and praise Him forever,
For His grace that made us free.
