“Behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me” (Rev. 22:12).
What sort of reward would you like the Lord to give you? If the Lord allowed you to choose the kind of reward you were to have, what would you ask for?
A touching story is told of Queen Victoria when she was once visiting wounded soldiers in Netley Hospital. One poor fellow was frightfully wounded ; he was mutilated almost beyond recognition. As her Majesty stood by his bedside she seemed greatly moved with pity, as though her heart went out with real compassion, and she longed to say something that should really comfort the sufferer. Taking one of his hands in both of her own, she bent over him, saying gently, “Thank you so much for all you have done for me. ”
Personally, I could wish for no other reward than this, just to be able to hear His own dear voice saying to me, “ Thank you so much for what you did for ME.”
“Why should the King recompense it me with such a reward ?” (2 Sam. 19:36).
