For our conversation is in heaven; from where also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ:…
Some years ago a traveller, who had recently returned from Jerusalem, discovered, in conversation with Humboldt, that he was as thoroughly conversant with the streets and houses of Jerusalem as he was himself; whereupon he asked the aged philosopher how long it was since he visited Jerusalem. He replied, "I have never been there, but I expected to go sixty years since, and I prepared myself." Should not the heavenly home boas familiar to those who expect to dwell there eternally?
(C. H. Spurgeon.)
