The Reward (Luke 19:29-38).
All the youths who will surrender to the Lord fully to the point that they are tied to His will, reserving no part of themselves to any other person or thing but allowing Him to loose them at His own will can be sure, that God in turn gives His all to them. They become the Lord’s boasting and pride (Job 1:8; 2:3; Exodus 19:5,6; Leveticus 20:26; Numbers 8:14).
- They become vessels unto honour (2 Timothy 2:20,21)
- They receive daily nutrients for complete development (John 15:1-4)
- Having kept themselves unspotted from any other person or things, they are preserved as the bride of Christ (Eph.5:26-27)
- They are God’s instrument of fulfilling His end-time programme (Lk. 19:31; Matt.21:1-5)
- They shall be fulfilled for accomplishing their God-given role.
