All this, and unspeakably more!
"Receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of
your souls." 1 Peter 1:9
The full and final salvation of our souls, embraces
the whole of what God has in reserve for His people
through eternity! It includes the enjoyment of
those pleasures . . .
which no sin can ever pollute,
which no sorrow can ever becloud,
which no time can ever impair,
which no change can ever affect,
which no calamity can ever destroy!
The full and final salvation of our souls, includes . . .
whatever the infinite wisdom of God can devise;
whatever the infinite love of God can prepare;
whatever the infinite power of God can secure;
complete deliverance from the bondage of corruption;
entire emancipation from the power of every foe;
the body of sin and death forever left behind;
every grace, grown to perfect maturity;
all the ineffable treasures of eternal glory;
all this, and unspeakably more!
Welcome shame and sorrow — if such an end shall at
length be ours! The ungodly world may despise us;
even our nearest friends may forsake us. Yet we can
well afford to bear their opposition without a single
murmur, if we are only permitted to cherish the hope
that our course will eventually terminate in so blissful
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has
imagined — what God has prepared for those who love
Him!" 1 Corinthians 2:9
