If you’re familiar with the Protestant Reformation, then John Knox is a household name. For many of us Knox is a type of hero. He was known for faithful preaching, courageous leadership, and being a model of suffering for the Gospel. God used him mightily during a crucial time in the history of His church.

Brothers and sisters, this world is not our home and this world does not give us our ultimate reward. When we die, we may be forgotten and become a place where cars drip their oil. But, we must not lose heart because we have a greater hope in “an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4).
Hope in Christ who promises, “I am coming soon! My reward is with me” (Rev. 22:12)
Come soon Lord Jesus.
