A glorious termination!
(From Winslow's, "The Aged Christian")
Never forget that the Christian pilgrimage
has a glorious termination. We must keep
this fully in view.
We seek a city that is to come. We are not
journeying to any uncertain, imaginary place.
We are going to our heavenly mansion!
We are traveling to the celestial city!
O solemn thought!
We are wending cur way to our glorious
inheritance, and in a little while, it will
burst upon us in its glory; blessed,
indescribable, inconceivable glory; and
we shall exchange an earthly pilgrimage,
for the heavenly and eternal rest that
awaits the people of God.
