Brethren, is not this the very cream of Heaven!

(Charles Spurgeon)

“We know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is!” 1 John 3:2 

Here we have seen Jesus by faith in such a way that we have beheld our burdens laid on Him, and our iniquities carried by Him into the wilderness–where, if they are sought for, they shall not be found. We have seen enough of Jesus to know that “He is altogether lovely.” We can say of Him, that He “is all my salvation, and all my desire.” Sometimes, when He opens the lattice, and shows Himself through those windows of agate, at the Lord’s Supper–the King’s beauty has entranced us even to our heart’s ravishment. Yet all that we have ever seen of Him, is somewhat like the report which the Queen of Sheba had of Solomon’s wisdom. When we once get to the court of the Great King, we shall declare that the half has not been told to us! “I myself will see Him with my own eyes–I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!” Job 19:27 

Brethren, is not this the very cream of Heaven! 

There have been many suggestions of what we shall do in Heaven, and what we shall enjoy, but they all seem to me to be wide of the mark compared with this one–that we shall be with Jesus, be like Him, and shall behold His glory!

Oh, to see the feet that were nailed, and to touch the hands that were pierced, and to look upon the head that wore the thorns–and to bow before Him who is ineffable love, unspeakable condescension, infinite tenderness! Oh, to bow before Him, and to kiss that blessed face! Jesus, what better do we want than to see You, and be with You forever! 

The streets of gold will have small attraction to us, and the harps of angels will but slightly enchant us–compared with the King in the midst of the throne! He it is who shall . . .
  rivet our gaze,
  absorb our thoughts,
  enchain our affections, and
  move all our sacred passions to their highest pitch of celestial ardor. 

We shall see Jesus!
