HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
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.
Here have we no continuing city. Ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations. There the wicked ceases from troubling, and there the weary be at rest.
We that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened. 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.
The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.
