To be with Jesus in the rest which remains for the people of God is a cheering hope indeed, and to expect this glory so soon is a double bliss.  Unbelief shudders at the Jordan which still rolls between us and the goodly land, but let us rest assured that we have already experienced more ills than death, at its worst, can cause us.  Let us banish every fearful thought and rejoice, with exceeding joy, in the prospect that this year we shall begin to be “forever with the Lord.” – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on Joshua 5.12.
