“The treasure we have in heaven is also something very much available to us now. We can and should draw upon it as needed, for it is nothing less than God himself and the wonderful society of his kingdom even now interwoven in my life. Even now we ‘have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless angels, and to God who discerns all, to the completed spirits of righteous people, and to Jesus the mediator of a new agreement’ (Hebrews 12:22-24). This is not by-and-by, but now. What is most valuable for any human being, without regard to an afterlife, is to be part of this marvelous reality. God’s kingdom now. Eternity is ongoing. I am now leading a life that will last forever.”
I’m Still Learning Here.
