Letters on Spiritual Subjects
My Dear Sister in Christ,
Oh, what heart can conceive or tongue express a
thousandth part of that joy and glory which He has reserved for His people
in the world to come, when He will bid them enter into His own joy, and
Himself will be their everlasting light, and as their God, their glory! Oh,
then we shall have the light of life, of glory-life, in such manner and
measure as far surpasses all our present thought!
Come, lie down by faith, in the bosom of His eternal
Love! It is a sweet, soft bed, that will delight and refresh you
exceedingly. Here is a basin of heavenly wine, or rather a sea of boundless
bliss! Drink your fill, bathe your soul in pleasures, and shout the glories,
the fullness, the praises of the strong Jehovah amid all your felt
emptiness, weakness, and imperfections! So shall you be exceeding joyful and
fruitful, and your obedience highly pleasing to your God and Father in the
Son of His love.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.
