Conversation in the hereafter

for September 8

As soldiers show their scars, and talk of battles, when they come at last to spend their old age in peace, so shall we in the dear land to which we are hastening speak of the faithfulness of God which brought us through all our conflicts.

Therefore, as the contests of earth prepare food for Heavenly conversation, we would not wish to be without them. We cannot wish to hear it said of the white-robed host, "These are they which came out of great tribulation," and then to feel that we did not share with them.

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]
