As the kingdom of Jesus Christ is not of this world, neither is the majesty of His kingdom. Therefore, it is not the heaping up of riches, learning, worldly respect, and authority that advances this majesty, but endeavoring to be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:15). It is by holy living, by living as Christ would if He were here. It is to be merciful as He is merciful; kind, faithful, and true as He is; pardoning injuries as He does; and purifying yourselves as He is pure. In a word (as you have it in 1 John 4:17), it is demeaning yourselves here as God would if He were in the world.

Therefore, do not think you cannot advance the majesty of the Lord because of your poor outward condition; that is, because you are poor, condemned, despised, and not regarded in the world. For Christ was all these, and yet the majesty of the Lord appeared in Him, of which Peter says they were eyewitnesses (2 Peter 1:16). In all these conditions, you may approve yourself to the consciences of men, as Christ did. You may be poor, but if you keep your sincerity and do not use deceitful, base, and unlawful means, but walk faithfully in your calling, manifest that you live by faith and depend on God, and show a contentment in your condition, and that you live a more comfortable life by the help of faith, delighting yourself in the Almighty, than those that have the most abundance, the majesty of the Lord will appear more in you than in a professor who glisters more in the world with regard to outward things
