Privilege And Supply

A military officer sometimes receives what is called a "brevet," that is, a commission to take rank above that for which he receives pay. His place of honour is exalted, but his income is not increased. His responsibility is greater, but the supply is not enlarged. Thank God, there are no brevets in the Lord's service, although the devil has been preaching it for centuries, and many Christians seem to believe him. For every enlarged privilege in the service of Jesus Christ there is given an increase of supply. According to your day, so shall your strength be. "My grace is sufficient for you" (2Co_12:9).
