Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof” (Ecclesiastes 7:8).

 We are approaching the conclusion of our fight of faith. Look to Jesus. He was the most despised of all men, “full of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” He was so despised that people hid their faces from Him. What was the end of His way, though? He now sits at the right hand of His Father, and everything is in subordination to Him. Just as He was, we are also despised in this world. This is what the Scriptures teach us. You must bear your cross if you want to receive a crown. You must go through the swamp, or you won’t be able to walk the golden streets. Whoever says yes to Jesus, the crucified One, experiences the end of his old life and a new life breaks through, for, “if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him” (Romans 6:8). “The end of a thing is better than its beginning.”

You may rejoice over the fact that you have found Him, for when you awake you will be like Him, conformed to His image. An uncut diamond looks unattractive and worthless, but in the hands of the diamond cutter, it is transformed into a glittering, valuable diamond. You may compare yourself to such a diamond. As a believer, you will be set in the crown of the King of all kings, because you are a member of the body of Jesus.
