…having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
“Death, to the believer, is but passing out of a world of sorrow and of sin — and entering upon a world of indescribable glory! If we lived more in anticipation of the happiness that waits us — earth would have less hold on our hearts’ best affections.”
If ye then be risen with Christ,
seek those things which are above,
where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Set your affection on things above,
not on things on the earth.
