Do we have any evidence?

John Owen 90x115by John Owen

We all profess that we are bound for Heaven, immortality and glory. But do we have any evidence that we really intend to go there–if all our thoughts are consumed about the trifles of this world, which we must leave behind us–and have only occasional thoughts of things above?

“If then you were raised with Christ–seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above–not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears–then you also will appear with Him in glory!” Colossians 3:1-4

All their concerns are upon His heart!

Letters of William Romaine, 1714-1795

His redeemed people are the object of His special care. They are all . . . bought with His blood, quickened by His Spirit, kept by His power, and blessed with His love.

All their concerns are upon His heart. His eyes are upon them. He sees His people with perfect delight, and they shall lack nothing good that He has to give. He is managing all things temporal and spiritual for their good.

He does not, He cannot, make one mistake in His government; no, not the least. He does all things well. He is wisdom, He is love, He is omnipotence itself.

Infinite wisdom directs His love and sets it to work. Being Almighty, He makes all things work together for the best to His dear people.
