Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 27th October

His Service, Face, Name

His servants shall serve him: and they shall see his face; and his name shall be on their forehead. (Revelation 22:3-4)

Three choice blessings will be ours in the Glory Land.

“His servants shall serve him.” No other lords shall oppress us. We shall serve Jesus always, perfectly, without weariness. This is heaven to a saint: in all things to serve Christ and to be owned by Him as His servant is our soul’s high ambition for eternity.

“And they shall see his face.” This makes the service delightful: indeed, it is the present reward of service. We shall know our Lord, for we shall see Him as He is. To see the face of Jesus is the utmost favour that the most faithful servant of the Lord can ask. What more could Moses ask than “Let me see thy face?”

“And his name shall be in their foreheads.” They gaze upon their Lord till His name is photographed upon their brows. They are acknowledged by Him, and they acknowledge Him.

O Lord, give us these three things in their beginnings now, that we may possess them in their fullness!
