For the morning of April 22nd

"Him hath God exalted." --Acts 5:31

Jesus, our Lord, once crucified, dead and buried, now sits upon the throne of glory. The highest place that heaven affordsis His by undisputed right. It is sweet to remember that theexaltation of Christ in heaven is a representative exaltation.He is exalted at the Father's right hand, and though as JehovahHe had eminent glories, in which finite creatures cannot share,yet as the Mediator, the honours which Jesus wears in heaven arethe heritage of all the saints. It is delightful to reflect howclose is Christ's union with His people. We are actually onewith Him; we are members of His body; and His exaltation is ourexaltation. He will give us to sit upon His throne, even as Hehas overcome, and is set down with His Father on His throne; Hehas a crown, and He gives us crowns too; He has a throne, but Heis not content with having a throne to Himself, on His righthand there must be His queen, arrayed in "gold of Ophir." Hecannot be glorified without His bride. Look up, believer, toJesus now; let the eye of your faith behold Him with many crownsupon His head; and remember that you will one day be like Him,when you shall see Him as He is; you shall not be so great as Heis, you shall not be so divine, but still you shall, in ameasure, share the same honours, and enjoy the same happinessand the same dignity which He possesses. Be content to liveunknown for a little while, and to walk your weary way throughthe fields of poverty, or up the hills of affliction; forby-and-by you shall reign with Christ, for He has "made us kingsand priests unto God, and we shall reign for ever and ever."Oh!, wonderful thought for the children of God! We have Christfor our glorious representative in heaven's courts now, andsoon He will come and receive us to Himself, to be with Himthere, to behold His glory, and to share His joy.
