Death to the Believer...

Death, to the believer, is but passing out of a world of sorrow and of sin and entering upon a world of indescribable glory!

If we lived more in anticipation of the happiness that waits us, earth would have less hold on our hearts' best affections.

[Mary Winslow]

Philippians 1:23 ... For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

Colossians 3:1-2 ... If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

2 Corinthians 4:17-18 ... For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;  While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.❤
