“People often ask why we are not told more about [heaven]. I think there are two answers to that.
“One is that because of our sinful state any description we might be given would be misunderstood by us. It is so glorious that we could never understand nor grasp it.
“The second reason is more important: it is that it is often idle curiosity that desires to know more. I will tell you what heaven is. It is ‘to be with Christ,’ and if that does not satisfy you, then you do not know Christ at all.
“‘Whom have I in heaven but thee?’ says the psalmist. I do not want anything else. Where Thou art is heaven. Just to look at Thee is sufficient. ‘To be with Christ’ is more than enough, it is everything.”
Faith Tried and Triumphant
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
—The Apostle John
