And in the article of death, as He saw the last fold of the grand design unrolled, He passed out of the world with the cry on His lips, “It is finished!” He uttered this cry as a soldier might do on the battlefield, who perceives, with the last effort of consciousness, that the struggle in which he has sacrificed his life has been a splendid victory. But the triumph and the reward of His work never come to an end; for still, as the results of what He did unfold themselves age after age, as His words sink deeper into the minds of men, as His influence changes the face of the world, and as heaven fills with those whom He has redeemed, “He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied.”

Buffeted, knocked down but never knocked out, cast down but never in despair, persecuted but never forsaken, because – praise the Lord! – you have found the answer to what it takes to stand in the ministry you have received: a clear view of Jesus, in contemplation; in reflection of His glory in the midst of the battle; and then being made like unto Him as day by day your heart is lifted up to the Lord Jesus and He imparts to your life the sweetness and loveliness or His character.

God has not forgotten you, nor has he gone back on any one of his promises to you. You may have experienced unanticipated detours, unwarranted attacks, unpredictable delays, unrealistic expectations, unexpected failures, unnecessary interruptions, unfathomable heartache or undeniable opposition —but that does not mean the purpose of God will not come to pass in your life. All of the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ Jesus.

Jesus was the suffering servant, headed for the cross. He died ONCE (one-time) for our sins to fulfill the law. Jesus is now and forever the triumphantly resurrected, ascended and glorified King. We must follow the resurrected King while never forgetting his sacrifice. However, it is difficult to follow a King if we think he is always leading us on His road of suffering. We need to catch up with where He is leading us.
