“This is the heaven we look for” by John Owen

“To have the eternal glory of God in Christ, with all the fruits of his wisdom and love while we ourselves are under the full participation of the effects of them, immediately, directly revealed, proposed, made known unto us, in a divine and glorious light, our souls being furnished with a capacity to behold and perfectly comprehend them,—this is the heaven which, according to God’s promise, we look for.”

-–John Owen, “The Grace and Duty of Being Spiritually Minded Declared and Practically Improved” in The Works of John Owen, ed. William Goold, (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1965), Vol. VII: p. 338f.
