I wake and consider what heaven is; what eternity is made of.
I know you, like me , have heard all the stories 100,000 times. Still we can’t understand the Majesty of Jesus.
The nature of his Majesty is faithfulness and righteousness. He has always done the will of his Holy Father, and he always will.
No one else has ever been that faithful. No one ever will. No one can. No one else has been with God from the beginning. No one else has been tested as he, yet found blameless and pure. He is first and best in absolutely everything. That’s why he is perfectly trustworthy.
We can’t perceive his glory. It’s simply not possible. And even though we know the nature of the wilderness in which he was tested, we can’t possibly understand his strength of love for God to endure with absolute purity.
These thoughts are just a beginning to the things of The Faith. But from this place, the glory of God among us explodes into every possible good thought and deed.
As foreign as it is among men, it is appropriate to speak words of glory for Jesus. Even while we debate what people would think of us if we spoke like that, all of creation in heaven has been doing it since the beginning. And without the slightest embarrassment or hesitation.
I know I’ve said these things before. I know I’ll say them again. And I know a time is coming when I won’t stop.
These are not just words. They are a door to joy. They are a window to eternal glory. They are a hand extended from heaven to lift us up from this place of death and trouble. They are the pure strength we’re looking for.
