A Bright Prospect

 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 6
WE get too much occupied with " our light affliction," and " the moment" in which it takes place. Our outlook is not far enough, nor high enough, and we are apt to forget the "far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory." The remedy for this is to "Look... at the things which are not seen"—a riddle, a contradiction, a paradox to all but faith, but how blessedly simple to faith.
You have a bright prospect. The most weighty teacher, the most faithful pastor, the most honored evangelist, has not a brighter prospect than yours. It is to be conformed to the image of God's Son, and spend eternity with Him. "We know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is." Then praise Him in the cloud, and soon you will see Him on the cloud, to be translated into His presence without a cloud.
