“And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.”
There is no danger that in the last day, that anyone will be overlooked or forgotten who has been a true follower of Christ. The obscurest Christian, hidden away in the lowliest or most neglected spot, will not be missed by the angels, when they come to gather in Christ’s little ones. On nearly every battle-field where the slain are buried, there are graves marked by the sad word “Unknown.” But if among these, there are those who belonged to Christ, the angels will not fail to find them and bring them.
A ship went down on the British coast, and all on board perished. None of the bodies of those who had been lost were found, except the little body of an infant that was washed ashore among the wreckage. The kindly people of the place who picked it up buried the body, and having no clew to its name, put on the little stone simply, “God knows.” When the angels come they will know whose body it is, and will not overlook it.
There is only one thing about which we need to concern ourselves, that we are indeed of those who have accepted Christ and have been faithful to him in this life. It will not matter in that day whether we have been rich or poor, famous among men or unknown; the determining element will be, whether or not we have belonged to Christ.
