Light

” ‘And there shall be no night there; and they shall need no candle, neither light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light’ Rev. 22:5.  The light that will be given to the souls of the glorified saints will be a most clear manifestation of God’s majesty and beauty. They shall see God as he is. That perfect holiness which they themselves shall have shall make they themselves shine like the sun forever and ever. Being changed into the same image, they shall also shine forth in the kingdom of their Father when they behold the shining of God’s glory, But this light of their holiness will be only as the reflection of God’s light, and lastly there will be the light of perfect happiness. God gives the light of comfort here, but there he gives the light of perfect joy and pleasure forever more.”  –Jonathan Edwards “The Blessing of God” p. 351

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.
