Eternal Perspectives

Most of the emphasis in Christianity is on becoming happier here, healed here, more blessed here, and more fulfilled here.

. . . Without heaven in clear view our Christianity fails to have a heavenward compulsion pulling us closer to God, closer to eternity, closer to home. It tends to become instead self-serving entertainment or a therapeutic center. A heavenless church seeks to satisfy longings and needs here rather than serving and sacrificing here with a view to satisfaction there.

~ Joseph Stowell ~ [Eternity]
