Jesus does not respond to all believers alike. He responds differently to those who seek more diligently.
God honors our race as compared to how others have run throughout church history (This is the principle of 2 Cor. 8:8)
Go after God! No one else can hinder your race. It doesn’t matter how other people might not recognize your ministry, pursue God! Choirs of saints are cheering you from the bannisters of heaven. “We finished the course by God’s grace,” they’re crying, “You can too!”
