The very cream of heaven!
(Charles Spurgeon, "Now, and Then")
There have been many suggestions of what we
shall do in heaven, and what we shall enjoy;
but they all seem to me to be wide of the mark
compared with this one: that we shall be with
Jesus, be like Him, and shall behold His glory.
Oh, to see the feet that were nailed,
and to touch the hand that was pierced,
and to look upon the head that wore the thorns,
and to bow before Him who is . . .
Oh, to bow before Him, and to kiss that blessed face!
Brethren, is not this the very cream of heaven?
The streets of gold will have small attraction to us,
and the harps of angels will but slightly enchant us,
compared with the King in the midst of the throne!
He it is who shall...
rivet our gaze,
absorb our thoughts,
enchain our affections, and
move all our sacred passions to
their highest pitch of celestial ardor!
We shall see Jesus!
"Yes, dear friends, we are already God's children,
and we can't even imagine what we will be like
when Christ returns. But we do know that when
He comes we will be like Him, for we will see
Him as He really is." 1 John 3:2
