Passing Pain & Eternal Glory

The sea-sick passenger shall come to land; Christ will be the first that will meet you on the shore.

I pray you learn to be worthy of his pains who correcteth; and let him wring, and be ye washed; for he hath a Father's heart, and a Father's hand, who is training you up, and making you meet for the high hall.

One year's time of heaven shall swallow up all sorrows, even beyond all comparison.

Christ is as full a feast as ye can have to hunger.

- Samuel Rutherford, The Loveliness of Christ
