God has sent over into our earthly wilderness life many samples of the good things of heavenly life, foretastes of the glories there awaiting us.
The joy, peace, love, and grace we get here are very sweet, but they are just little specimens of fruits that grows everywhere in the Better Land. The old rabbi say that when the famine began in Egypt, he and the storehouses were opened, Joseph threw the chaff of the grain upon the Nile, that it might float down on the river and show those who lived below that there was abundance of provision laid up for them farther up the river.
So, the blessings of divine grace, which we enjoy in this world, are little more than the husks of the heavenly good things, sent down on the river of divine grace, as foretastes or intimations of what is in store for us in heaven..The joy that Christians and believers have here is deep and rich, but heaven’s joy is infinitely deeper and richer.
You will not be in heaven two seconds before you cry out,why did I place so much importance on things that were so temporary? What was I thinking? Why did I waste so much time,energy and concern on what wasn’t going to last?
Blessings and Love ❤️
