(Octavius Winslow "Evening Thoughts")
"He who overcomes will inherit all
things, and I
will be his God and he will be my son." Rev. 21:7
How vast, how illimitable, then, the inheritance
the saints, inheriting "all things!" This is a beautiful
idea of heaven; it is a lovely picture, on which the
eye of faith delights to dwell.
The earthly heir looks at his inheritance,
walks through it, luxuriates amidst its beauties, and
anticipates its full possession.
The heir of glory has his inheritance
too; it is heaven!
He looks to it, he longs for it; and soon the Savior will
come in personal glory, and institute him into its full
and eternal possession!
