Eternal Perspectives

Samuel Rutherford compares our experience in heaven with a bride’s delight on her wedding day. What is it that thrills her most of all? Her dress? The flowers? The guests? None of these. “The bride taketh not, by a thousand degrees, so much delight in her wedding garment as she doth in her bridegroom; so we, in the life to come . . . shall not be so much affected with the glory that goeth about us, as with the bridegroom’s joyful face and presence.”

~ Edward Donnelly, [Biblical Teaching on the Doctrines of Heaven and Hell]
