[January 8]
And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go. Genesis 24:58
THIS well represents the question which comes before those called to be of the bride of Christ. They hear that he is the "Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." They hear that he is Lord of all, the inheritor of the "exceeding great and precious promises." They learn that union with him will mean the pleasures of fellowship forevermore and participation with him in all his great and wonderful future. Such as are rightly exercised answer, "I will go," as Rebekah did, with great promptness....Only a whole- hearted love for the Lord and a well-grounded faith ...will carry us through to the end of the journey, joyful in anticipation to be finally accepted into glory with our Beloved, the King of Glory. Z'13-60 R5188:1 (Hymn 87)
