"I am content to fill a little space if God be glorified."
--Susanna Wesley

My own heart rarely displays such humility. What about yours? Isn't the proclamation of God's glory a more worthy ambition than any? And wouldn't it be absurd to set your sights on a lesser goal? "Filling a little space" no longer seems second-rate if you can trust the Lord to work through it.
. . .
A short time in obscurity will be forgotten in the splendor of Heaven, where Christ's elect "will see His face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever." (Revelation 22) To reign with Christ-- that's well worth any "little space" He gives me in this life.
