by Oxenden, Ashton, 1808-1892

Fifty years hence, where shall you and
I be ? We shall probably have passed away
from this world. Our places will be filled
by others. Our houses will be occupied by
other tenants. Another set of faces will
be seen in our village or our town.

Where shall we be ? In our graves, you
will say. Yes, our bodies will be there, but
not our sotils. They can never die. They
are immortal. Those who have lived here
without God, and without hope, will be
living still without Him, and hopelessly
banished from His presence. But those of
us who have been living that Christian life
— that spiritual life — of which I have spoken
so often in the foregoing chapters — they
will be still living that very same life which
was begun here, but which will then be
perfect and unbroken through eternity.

THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IN HEAVEN. by Oxenden, Ashton, 1808-1892Fifty years hence, where shall you and I be ? We shall probably have passed away from this world. Our places will be filled by others. Our houses will be occupied by other tenants. Another set of faces will be seen in our village or our town. Where shall we be ? In our graves, you will say. Yes, our bodies will be there, but not our sotils. They can never die. They are immortal. Those who have lived here without God, and without hope, will be living still without Him, and hopelessly banished from His presence. But those of us who have been living that Christian life  — that spiritual life — of which I have spoken so often in the foregoing chapters — they will be still living that very same life which was begun here, but which will then be perfect and unbroken through eternity.

I. The Christian Life in Heaven is a life of Service. When St. John speaks of the happy world above, he says, '* There shall be no more curse ; but the throne of God and the Lamb shall be in it : and His servants shall serve HimT Blessed be God, He allows us now to serve Him. If we are His people, our delight is to do His will. But oftentimes, when the spirit is willing, the flesh is sadly weak. Oftentimes we 234 THE CHRISTIAN LIFE. grieve to think that our hands are so feeble, and our hearts so cold. Our zeal flags. Our desires are checked. We grow faint and weary in well-doing. But in heaven there will be no sins to hinder us, and no infirmities to weaken us.
