The Christian may say, I want nothing before God, I have Christ there; and God would repudiate anything more. I know that God has accepted the person and blood of His Son. God rests there, and there I rest, and have nothing now to do but to seek to glorify Him by my life down here.
In Rev. 22 the Church is taught to say, "Let him that is athirst come." She is brought into the place of Christ in this (for it was He who first said, "Let him that is athirst come"), and speaks in His name, because the Spirit is there.
There is no difference, as regards acceptance, between Paul and us, but a great difference as to reward of service.
