The Return.5

"And he will send his angels with the great sound of a trumpet; and they will gather together his chosen ones as from the four winds, from the farthest ends of the heavens and earth, and reward everyone according to his works."

Each year, as the earth's calendar slowly winds its way around to the
month of June, the people of the United States of America wait with breathless anticipation more prodigious announcements from its Supreme Court.

The Year 2015 did not disappoint for drama as the Supremes weighed in on no less than the meaning of love and the meaning of words! And, as usual, their decisions were met with Fabulous Fawning on the victors side; Anger and Vitriol on the losers.

And the earth's calendar keeps moving...

To the day when the final Judge will reign Supreme.  His word: Truth.  His meaning: Clear.  His intentions: Good.  His reward: Sure.

Let us then, as Jesus' followers, fix our hope, not on temporal judgments of finite men, but on the things that last eternally, things that bring eternal reward, namely, Truth, Obedience, Goodness.

Can there be any greater reward than to hear the righteous Judge say: 

"Well done, good and faithful servant! Enter into the joy of your Master. In keeping my commandments reflecting my Father's goodness, you became True!"
