“He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” Revelation 3:21
“Old iron bedstead religion” is firm on each end, but sags in the middle. A person receives Christ as Savior, and is exuberant at the launch of his walk in the Lord. Another is approaching earthly life’s end, confident and firm in the assurance of Heaven. But there’s a middle stage in the Christian life, between the exuberance of the New Birth and the quiet assurance of eternal security. The overcomers are those who experience victory in the middle, when the initial exuberance is years in the past and the final lap decades into the future. Overcomers are firm in the middle.
