Meditate on Heaven

 3.3.11

Today is Thursday of Borrowed words, it is a day in which I enjoy sharing with you some findings from my reading corner.

This month I will be sharing with you quotes about Heaven; Oh how we need to live with our eyes fixed on Jesus and our heart longing for our eternal home in Heaven! It is so easy to get caught up in the temporary things, in the to do list and the calendar that we must remind our souls that we are pilgrims here, that we our citizenship in in Heaven. We must remind ourselves that even though we live in the frame of time, we are destined to live eternally. I pray that these wise words that I'll be sharing here may help you long to draw nearer to the only One who can lead you to Heaven: Jesus Christ.




Meditate upon HEAVEN. 

Heaven is the quintessence of all blessedness. 
There the saints shall have all their holy hearts can desire! 
We shall behold the King in His beauty!

What a glorious place will this be! In heaven
"God will be all in all" beauty to the eye, music to the ears, 
joy to the heart; and this He will be to the poorest saint, 
as well as the richest. 
O Christian, who is now at your hard labor,
perhaps following the plough—you shall sit on the throne
of glory! The poorest believer shall be taken from his
laboring work, and set at the right hand of God, having
the crown of righteousness upon his head!

"For our momentary light affliction is producing for us
an absolutely incomparable eternal weight of glory!"
2 Corinthians 4:17

Meditation on heaven would excite and quicken
OBEDIENCE. It would put spurs to our sluggish hearts,
and make us "abound in the work of God, knowing that
our labor is not in vain in the Lord!" 
The weight of glory would not hinder us in our race—
but cause us to run the faster! 
This weight would add wings to duty!

Meditation on heaven would make us strive after heart
PURITY, because only the "pure in heart shall see God."

Meditation on heaven would be a pillar of SUPPORT under
our sufferings.

Heaven will make amends for all. 
One hour in heaven will make us forget all our sorrows!
The sun dries up the water; just so—one beam of God's
glorious face will dry up all our tears!

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no
more death or mourning or crying or pain!" Rev. 21:4

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
