Ferguson: the coming fruition

Thursday, May 22, 2014
    And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.
    —2 Thessalonians 3:13 (NIV)
    The progress of mankind has always depended upon those who, seemingly isolated and powerless in their own day, have seen their vision and remained true to it. In the darkening corridors of time, they preserved integral their vision of the daylight at the end. This is a matter not of calculation but of faith. Our work may be small and its results invisible to us. But we may rest assured it will come to fruition in God’s good time.
    ... John Ferguson (b. 1921), The Enthronement of Love: Christ the Peacemaker, London: Fellowship of Reconciliation, 1951, p. 102 (see the book)
    See also 2 Thess. 3:13; Ps. 27:13; Matt. 5:8; Luke 18:1; 2 Cor. 4:1,16; Rev. 2:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have encouraged Your people in everything.
