“For I know the purposes which I am purposing for you, says Jehovah; purposes of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jer 29:11

“Therefore, my brethren, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me–practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. Php 4:1, 4, 5-9

The Believer’s Eternal Destiny

TheologyGirl Spiritual Selections
“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.’”*
