Famous explorers who took risk and endured hardship to blaze new trails for civilization are hailed as heroes. They voluntarily chose danger and obstacles to pursue an honorable reward. The saints of God who share this sense of urgency and determination are fitting members of God’s advance party. Exploration party leaders were determined to return every man to safety. So God and Christ are focused on their Church. God will recognize those who follow Him on His great expedition, and demonstrate willingness, urgency and resolve.
