Extract from a Letter of N. Anderson.
Not until we are with the Lord shall the wilderness way be ended. There is no end to the discipline while we are here, but what a yield in the day of Christ's glory. He shall be surrounded by His holy myriads — not one automaton shall be among them. Every one of them shall come out in the kingdom, to His glory, with a conscious knowledge of His love and mercy, and an intelligent ability to act for Him in the administration of that glorious day. All formed in days and ways of contrariety — Oh! the wonder of the grace which has taken up such weak mortals as ourselves with a view to emblazoning the precious features of Christ throughout the universe of bliss and glory. Praise Him! We shall praise Him for ever! All shall be found to praise, honour and glory at Christ's appearing.
