“The Believer’s Eternal Destiny”
April 19, 2017
We begin a new series of theologically based quotes on our eternal destiny with the Lord Jesus Christ as our hope and joy as we walk through our pilgrimage here as His servants and ambassadors. We have chosen some of the best theological writings for this series and pray it will be an encouragement to you in your daily walk. We begin with series of quotes from Geerhardus Vos. Be encouraged!
“The Believer longs for heaven because it is the realm of closest embrace of God:
‘Those who looked for the city that has foundations sought it for no other reason than that its maker and builder is God. It is because it is the city of God, the structure in which he has embodied his own perfection, in which his thoughts and purposes for his own stand objectified, that it forms a worthy object of the supreme religious quest of the believer. In it is God at every point, and those who dwell in it see him constantly. The measure of their desire for it becomes the measure of their love for God.’”*
*Geerhardus Vos, Pauline Eschatology, 61
