You have but a little way to go!
(Thomas Watson, "Body
"Our salvation is nearer now
than when we
first believed." Romans 13:11
You are within a few days march
Salvation is near to you. Christians, it is but a
little while, and you will be done weeping and
praying—and be triumphing! You shall put off
your mourning garments—and put on white
robes! You shall put off your battle armor—and
put on a victorious crown! You are almost ready
to commence eternal glory!
When a man is almost at the end of a race—will
he tire, or faint away? You have but a little
way to go—and you will set your foot in heaven!
Though the way is up-hill and full of thorns; yet
you have gone the greatest part of your way,
and shortly shall rest from your labors!
"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father
has been pleased to give you the kingdom!"
