A Heavenly Focus

“…Let us prize the favour of God above all that the earth affords. So what if we endure hardness here! Since Christ left heaven to suffer for us, shall we not be willing to suffer some straits for him? Faith sees a greater good in Christ than in all earthly treasures. A heavenly focus makes heaven become present to us, and allows us to find sufficiency in the worst estate upon earth.” — Richard Sibbes “Works” Vol 7 p. 412-413, as quoted by Richard Rushing in “Voices From The Past” p. 356

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
