From J.C. Ryle
“The man who is about to sail for Australia or New Zealand as a settler is naturally anxious to know something about his future home, its climate, its employments, its inhabitants, its ways, its customs. All these are subjects of deep interest to him. You are leaving the land of your nativity, you are going to spend the rest of your life in a new hemisphere. It would be strange indeed if you did not desire information about your new abode. Now surely, if we hope to dwell for ever in that ‘better country, even a heavenly one,’ we ought to . . . try to become acquainted with it.”
A voice of wisdom from another time.
- What are you learning about your next and eternal home?
- If heaven’s joys are enhanced by seeking “His kingdom and His righteousness” now (Matthew 6:33), how are you preparing for the best that eternity has to offer?
