Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

God's "Well Done" Is For The Faithful Man

John the Baptist did no miracle, yet he won the highest praise of Christ. "Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John." 

A man may lead a false and rotten life and yet win the praise of men. 

The acid test of the successful life is this: does it win the praise of Christ?

And the fine thing is that to win that praise one does not need to be wonderful or striking: it is given to those who may do no miracle...

To those who trust Him when everything is dark; to those who keep their faces towards the morning;

To those who, through headache and through heartache, quietly and doggedly do their appointed bit;

To those who "endure" with a smile upon their lips; to those who help a brother by the way;

To those who look for a city which hath foundations.

In this big world there is room for every gift and for every genius who has the power of miracle.

But in this big world there is no room and power and victory for the great multitude who do no miracle.

It is not "Well done, thou good and brilliant servant," else would there be little hope for millions.

It is "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."
