Heaven, My Awaited Hope

 10.3.11

This month I am sharing borrowed words, quotes that nourish, about Heaven. May our heart be stirred to meditate upon Heaven.



If you want to know what heaven is,
you can spell it in five letters, and when
you put the five letters together they look
like this:

"J E S U S."

That is heaven. It is all the heaven
the angels round the throne desire to
know. They want nothing better than
this- to see his face, to behold his glory,
and to dwell in it world without end.

(from Spurgeon's sermon, "Christ the
Glory of His People" #826. Luke 2:32.)



*************************


When we get to heaven, 
what joy will it be torehearse the events of the journey, 
and to see how the path was strewn all along with mercies.

How blessed will be . . .
rest after toil,
safety after peril,
victory after conflict.

Jesus will still lead us into fresh pastures,
to higher and yet higher regions of . . .
knowledge,
purity, and
bliss. 

No carnal desires will drag us down. 

No sinful habits will cling to and entangle us. 

The flesh will no longer lust against the spirit. 

No enemies will beset the road, to allure
us from it, or check our advance. 

We shall forever follow Jesus . . . 

"forever beholding fresh beauties in His countenance,
forever discovering new glories in His character,
forever experiencing fresh raptures in His love! 



May we long for Heaven and nothing less.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
