We Will Be With Christ!

“Father, I want those You have given Me to be with Me where I am, and to see My glory!” John 17:24
Christ can never rest satisfied until His gracious communion with His people here on earth, issues in their perfect and glorious communion with Him in heaven.

Christ is very desirous of His people’s fellowship and company. It is a part of Christ’s joy–that they should be where He is. Christ will not be happy alone. As a tender father, He can enjoy nothing if His children may not have part with Him. Even now–He is always with them . . .

to eye their behavior,
to hear their prayers,
to guide their way,
to protect their persons,
to cheer their spirits, and
to delight in their presence.

The greatest part of the happiness which we shall have in heaven, lies in this–that then we shall be with Christ, and have immediate communion with Him. O sirs! the great end of our being in heaven, is to behold and enjoy the glory of Christ!

Certainly the glory and happiness of heaven to the elect, will consist much in being in Christ’s company, in whom they delight so much on earth. To follow the Lamb wherever He goes, to enjoy Him fully, and to be always in His presence–is the heaven of heaven, the glory of glory! This is the sparkling diamond in the ring of glory!
The day is coming wherein believers shall be completely happy in a sight of Christ’s glory, and shall visibly and immediately behold and enjoy Him!
