To Those Who Coninue

March 9, 2013

An obscure passage maybe, nevertheless, one that speaks volumes.

Luke 22:28-30 “But you are those who have continued with Me in My trials. And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

These bullet points are worth meditating on:

  1. It is those who “continue” with Him that receive reward. (Matt. 24:13)
  2. The reward is great. We receive of His kingdom, even dining with Him and the Father. (Rev. 19:1-10)
  3. While the disciples (first apostles) will actually judge with Him, all those who “overcome” with Him will be given places of authority in His Kingdom. (Rev. 2:21)

Oh, saints! This is real! Can you believe it? Do you “look forward” to His coming? I can hardly wait! (II Pet. 3:12-14)

When we really believe this, and other glorious truths about our eternal place with the Father and the Son, we are strengthened to “continue.” There IS the blessing of reward! All for His glory! I Cor. 15:20-28; Eph. 2:7

  1. Amen brother, “The reward is great.” if we just realized how great this reward really is many who give their all and time on this earth to pursue Christ’s worth and kingdom.
