I wanna be in the light…

4 Aug

Hear these great and encouraging words from Charles Spurgeon.

“The joy of the saints in heaven is comprised in this: Jesus chose us, loved us, bought us, cleansed us, robed us, kept us, glorified us…Nothing of beauty is left when the light is gone.  Without light no radiance flashes from the sapphire, no peaceful ray proceeds from the pearl; and so all beauty of the saints above comes from Jesus…In heaven our knowledge will be perfect, but the Lord Jesus Himself will be the foundation of it…Whatever there may be of transcendent splendor, Jesus will be the center and soul of it all.”

What awesome and encouraging words from an amazing man of God!  After reading those words yesterday morning, I found my thoughts clouded by them for the rest of the day.  I am fascinated by the thought of living in the presence of a living Savior whose own glory is so radiant and bright that there is no need of a sun or moon.  In Revelation 21:22-25 John writes, “And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.  And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.  By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day – and there will be no night there.”  I simply cannot wait to get to that point in eternity.  How amazing will it be to experience that kind of intimacy with our Savior?

Let the imagery of Revelation 21 captivate your mind and thoughts today.  If you are a Christian, let it encourage and uplift you; excite and enthuse you.  If you are not yet a believer, let it intrigue and challenge you; move and salvationcompel you.
