Eternal Perspective

The King of earth will soon return,
And call each of His warriors home.
And each of them a crown will earn,
When Jesus Christ ascends His throne.

If you would be among this band,
Then be a warrior now and pray,
That you may in your armor stand,
And finish well on judgment day.

And also give what God gave you,
In giving will God’s joy abound,
For every warrior needs his food,
The givers God will give a crown.

But also go and preach the news,
And boldly do what God has shone,
Rejecting flesh, God’s will now choose,
That God will say to you, “well done.”

Have this eternal goal in mind:
The greatest call, to praise the Lord,
And those who He will faithful find,
Receive His thanks and His reward.

But when God give us His reward,
We’ll toss our trophies at His feet,
And then we’ll bow before the Lord,
And great thanksgiving there repeat.

So by this grace be overwhelmed,
And in that passion be renewed.
We sinners in salvation helmed,
We helpless with God’s might infused.

One thought on “Eternal Perspective

  1. I’ve been out of town at a conference in Kansas City this week, taught by Roger Hershey, where we’ve really been focusing in on the eternal perspective of missions — God will win in the end. No matter how bad things look, or how weak the church looks, or how strong the enemy seems, God will win in the end. God will come and restore justice, and create a New Heavens and a New Earth where we will spend eternity in His presence. And when He comes back, he will reward those who have been faithful to Him. So the question is, what should we be doing now so that when God comes back, He will find us faithful? Three things, pray, give, and go.
