Fitting Us For Heaven

“Now afflictions working by way of fitting us to that glory, whereto we have title by Christ, as soon as a man is a Christian, he hath title to heaven. But how doth God fit us for heaven?  One way is by crosses and afflictions.  He fits us for heaven, as the winter fitteth the ground for spring, by killing the weeds, and mellowing the ground.  So that whatsoever we suffer here, fits us for heaven…”  –Richard Sibbes “Works of” Vol. 4, p. 478

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.
