Unlimited: We Look At Things That Are Not Seen

We look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen (2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV). 

In our Christian pilgrimage it is good, for the most part, to be looking forward. Forward lies the crown, and onward is the goal. Whether it be for hope, for joy, for consolation, or for the inspiring of our love, the future must, after all, be the grand object of the eye of faith.

Looking into the future we see sin cast out, the body of sin and death destroyed, the soul made perfect, and fit to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light. Looking further yet, the believer’s enlightened eye can see beyond death to a light-filled eternity; he sees himself enter the heavenly gates, hailed as “more than conqueror,” crowned by the hand of Christ, embraced in the arms of Jesus, glorified with him, and permitted “to sit together with him on his throne, even as he has overcome and has sat down with the Father on his throne.”

The joys of heaven will surely compensate for the sorrows of earth. So let us not doubt! Death is just a narrow stream. Time, how short—eternity, how long! Death, how brief—immortality, how endless!

– Charles Spurgeon (adapted)

Eli’s Reflection: Children are always looking forward to something, and they can’t be quiet about it! What are you looking forward to the most in heaven? Think of three people you’d like to share this with. Go on, be excited enough to tell them!
