  "Wherefore also we Pray always for you, that our God would

                     count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good

                pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power:

                that The Name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in

                you, and ye in Him, according to the Grace of our God and

                 The Lord Jesus Christ" [1 Thessalonians  1:11-12.]


Thiscalling of God for which he is praying to be the portion of the saints at Thessaloniki is indeed "THE PRIZE of The High Calling of God in Christ Jesus"  [Philippians 3:14.] and this "prize" and the greatness of this calling for all the saints is revealed in the previous verse, which says...  "When He (Christ) comes to be glorified in His saints and to be admired at in all them that believe" [2 Thessalonians 1:10.]

What a Prize and high calling! To think that The Lord will be so glorified in us when He returns, and The Church is raptured and presented to heaven:

What a display of of

the Glorious re-creation of sinners to saints "in Christ" causing all  "the principalities and powers in heavenly places" [Ephesians 3:10.] to step back and Marvel at The Splendor of The Multiplied Variable Glory of Christ Revealed in the Transformed  mighty host of The Body of Christ, and as this promise says, Christ will be held in ADMIRATION IN EVERY BELIEVER BY ALL OF HEAVEN!

How wonderfully Christ has wrought for us, and in us for His Eternal Glory.

Rejoice and FIX your eyes only on Jesus dear brother and sister and press on toward this GREAT and Eternal Prize!


Jesus Loves You.

God Bless.
