To Ponder:

pathoflifeHEAVEN! “You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand!” Psalm 16:11. HEAVEN! What is it? It is God’s residence, the Savior’s home, our Father’s house, a paradise of pleasure, a temple of worship, and the residence of perfect purity and peace! There God unveils His glory, the Savior exhibits His charms, the angels perform their service, and the saints are entirely happy with their God. In Heaven sin is banished, holiness is perfected, life is a continual feast, and mortality is swallowed up in life! From Heaven all pain is banished, all enemies are excluded, and all causes of sorrow are shut out! In Heaven all our prayers are answered, all our desires are gratified, and all our needs are supplied. There is no weeping, wailing, or wishing there. In Heaven our knowledge will be perfect, our happiness will be abiding, our pleasures will be ever new. In Heaven we shall see Jesus, be with Jesus, and be like Jesus, forever! (James Smith, “HEAVEN!” 1858)
