Bask in the Glory of God

From the PastorWe will bask in the glory of God, realizing at last our chief end- to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. The psalmist wrote, "In thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." (Ps. 16:11).

Such a thought is unfathomable to our finite minds. But Scripture repeatedly makes clear that heaven is a realm of unsurpassed joy, unfading glory, undiminished bliss, unlimited delights, and unending pleasures. It will be a perfect existence. We will have unbroken fellowship with all heaven's inhabitants. Life there will be devoid of any sorrows, cares, tears, fears, or pain: "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new." (Rev. 21:4-5).

In "My Savior First of All," eighteenth-century hymn writer Fanny Crosby wrote:

When my life's work is ended; and I cross the swelling tide,
When the bright and glorious morning I shall see,
I shall know my Redeemer when I reach the other side,
And His smile will be the first to welcome me. ...

Thru the gates of the city in a robe of spotless white,
He will lead me where no tears will ever fall;
In the glad song of ages I shall mingle with delight
But I long to meet my Savior first of all.
