“Our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.” Romans 13:11
You are within a few days march of heaven! Salvation is near to you. Christians, it is but a little while, and you will be done weeping and praying—and be triumphing! You shall put off your mourning garments—and put on white robes! You shall put off your battle armor—and put on a victorious crown! You are almost ready to commence eternal glory!
When a man is almost at the end of a race—will he tire, or faint away? You have but a little way to go—and you will set your foot in heaven! Though the way is up-hill and full of thorns; yet you have gone the greatest part of your way, and shortly shall rest from your labors!
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom!”
