"FROM GLORY UNTO GLORY"

"Once I get over this difficulty, I'II be all right." We have often heard this said; perhaps we have said it ourselves. But sometimes when we have got over the difficulty, we have at once been faced by another. And then we have been tempted to say despairingly, "Life is just one difficulty after another."

When David was still a shepherd boy he destroyed a lion and a bear which attacked his flocks. Later, the freedom of Israel was threatened by the Philistine giant, Goliath. David did not complain that he had already had a hard time defeating the lion and the bear, or that he had done his bit; he cheerfully accepted the new and greater challenge. "The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear," he said, "he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine" (I Sam. 17:37). And he slew Goliath. This was only the prelude to the meeting of still greater calls made on him as a king.
