Friend, Jesus, Jesus Sayings, Love, Messiah, Revelation 2, Reward, Shepherd
We live a life building on what we’ve been given, complementing our basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others.
With these qualities active and growing in our lives, no grass will grow under our feet, no day will pass without its reward as we mature in our experience of our Master Jesus.
Here’s the reward I have for every conqueror, everyone who keeps at it, refusing to give up: You’ll rule the nations, your Shepherd-King rule as firm as an iron staff, their resistance fragile as clay pots. This was the gift my Father gave me; I pass it along to you—and with it, the Morning Star!
