The Lord working through us

I believe it is no fantasy or delusion to think this way: that our whole Christian life consists in having heaven continually striving to catch us, close in on us. Every Christian act, belief, love. sacrifice, struggle, perseverance and courageous performance make possible God’s presemce in our lives.
All coldness, indifference, slothfulness, weakness, pride and covetousness–everything that sin is called–forces God away and bars the road to Him. Heaven wants to come to us because heaven is only God’s love come home. What a beautiful way of looking at life: heaven is on the way to meeting me, relentlessly advancing toward me and God’s eye is upon me. What mightiness of the will is behind this!
