GO BACK FOR THE WORLD? NEVER!
-Spurgeon, "Go back? Never!"
Whatever we may find in this world,
we shall never find a heaven here.
We may hunt the world through, and say--
"This looks like a little paradise," but there
is no paradise this side of the skies--
for a child of God at any rate.
There is enough out there in the farmyard for
the hogs, but there is not for the children.
There is enough in the world for sinners,
but there is not for saints.
They have stronger, sharper, and more vehement
desires, for they have a nobler life within them,
and they desire a better country.
And even if they get entangled for a while in this country,
and in a certain measure become citizens of it,
they are still uneasy; their citizenship is in heaven,
and they cannot rest anywhere but there.
