We look for visions from heav­en, for earth­quakes and thun­ders of God’s pow­er (the fact that we are deject­ed proves that we do), and we nev­er dream that all the time God is in the com­mon­place things and peo­ple around us. If we will do the duty that lies near­est, we shall see Him. One of the most amaz­ing rev­e­la­tions of God comes when we learn that it is in the com­mon­place things that the Deity of Jesus Christ is realized.”

Oswald Cham­bers

The Body of Christ, the Church, is not just an expres­sion of the life of God, but a pre­view of eter­ni­ty. It’s the reveal­ing of the real­i­ty of eternity.

I’m not going to be a father to my son in heav­en. I’m not. But I will be a part of the fam­i­ly of God there, just as I am here. That fam­i­ly is eter­nal, and is so much more real than our earth­ly family.”
