This past Sunday we talked about the concept that as followers of Christ, we don’t fully belong here. Our home is in heaven. And we talked about how we can’t even find ultimate happiness here. Our hope and loyalty is in heaven.
I meant to include this quote when talking about how we can’t look for this world to make us happy. I totally forgot to include it.
It seems to me quite disastrous that the idea [some have] about Christianity is an other-worldly, unreal, idealistic kind of religion that suggests that if we are good we shall be happy…. On the contrary, it is fiercely and even harshly realistic, insisting that… there are certain eternal achievements that make even happiness look like trash.
