But we know that the end is with Him. We have got the vision. "The knowledge of the Lord shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea." It is going to be! We are heading up, fast heading up, to the great climax when the one issue will become universal: "Who is going to have this world?" And there is every, every facility and every means now available for deciding that in a very cataclysmic way. "A new heaven and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness."

Well, I don't know how to stop with such a thing, but I did want to get this to you: why are we on this earth? Things will be taken from us, men will turn against us, repudiate us, reject us. They will discredit us; they did it to the Lord. Why are we here? For self-vindication? Not at all. To hold the ground for the Lord, to be a patch for the Lord in this world. That is the purpose of being called into fellowship with Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Shall we pray: Lord, do cover all the faults. Take responsibility for the imperfections of thy servants, but do register in us what is the truth, "as the truth is in Jesus." Oh, convict us of this. We are interested in a lot of things, making, forming, all this, Lord; but do show us today, there is only one thing that matters to Thee, and that is the place that Thou dost have and how much of a place Thou dost have. Do bring this upon us in a new way. Hear our prayer, answer us, for Thine Own Name and satisfaction's sake. Amen.
