Spurgeon reminds us this morning of why God has us to remain on this earth after the time of our salvation. It is not to increase our wealth or have a larger home or a fancier car. In fact it is to take our proper place in order fulfill His perfect plan; God does not need us for this to take place but, by His grace, he allows us to take up a position in the “race.”

1 Chr 9: 24 – Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but {only} one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. He allows us to play a role.

Hbr 12: 1 – Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

Spurgeon rightfully points out that sanctification is a long and continued process and that we will not be perfected until that day we are face to face with Him. This is such a powerful statement in that it is testimony to God’s desire to use us, as imperfect as we are.

This morning let us contemplate these things that we may be reminded that we belong to Him for His service, in His perfect plan and for His Glory.
