As I was working out at the YMCA of Greater Charlotte last Monday, I watched on television as The Kansas City Chiefs arrived home to a hero’s welcome after winning the Super Bowl.
The first one off the plane carried the Lombardi Trophy. And then one after the other, each player walking down to the crowd waiting to receive them with tremendous applause . . . back home, the victors!
Then I thought of the LORD’s servants in many parts of the world who in their unknown, unpublicized ways have had their own “wins” for the LORD . . . and what it will be like when they arrive in His glorious presence and are able to come before Him and hold out the symbols of those small triumphs and say, “LORD, we did this for You, by Your strength, and we give these triumphs back to You.”
What a day that will be!
