Monarch of heaven would have you possess and enjoy all that can ennoble, expand,
and exalt your being and fit you to dwell with Him forever, your existence
measuring with the life of God. What a prospect is the life which is to come!
What charms it possesses! How broad and deep and measureless is the love of
God manifested to man!
The privileges granted to the children of God are without limit,—to
be connected with Jesus Christ, who, throughout the universe of heaven and
worlds that have not fallen, is adored by every heart, and His praises sung
by every tongue; to be children of God, to bear His name, to become a member
of the royal family; to be ranged under the banner of Prince Immanuel, the
King of kings and Lord of lords.
The Son of God was the heir of all things, and the dominion and glory of the
kingdoms of this world were promised to Him. . . . Even as Christ was in the
world, so are His followers. They are the sons of God, and joint heirs with
Christ; and the kingdom and dominion belong to them.
In place of the world, He will give you, for a life of obedience, the kingdom
under the whole heavens. He will give you an eternal weight of glory and a
life that is as enduring as eternity.
