We continue to meditate on the glory set before us as believers by considering the following:

  • We know many blessings here on earth
  • Nevertheless, these blessings are always lacking in one way or another and may even be mixed with sorrow
  • Why it is that this is the case

We see that God gives us a foretaste of heaven here on earth but he does not want us to have all our happiness and to look for our contentment here - rather we are to look ahead to heaven and anticipate our happiness there, where it will be unmixed with sin and disappointment.
