Genesis 29:1-35; Job 38:1-39:30; Matthew 15:29-16:12

For God is in heaven, and thou upon earth. Ecclesiastes 5:2

What a contrast in this verse! The Lord God, the Holy One, enthroned above in all His perfection. While here on earth are perishing sinners, totally unfit to join Him. Thank God for the One who bridges the gap! “For there is…one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all” (1 Tim. 2:5-6). Thank God it is possible to be with Him in heaven! “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit” (Isa. 57:15). Will you be in heaven forever? —Pete Smith

Once Heaven seemed a far-off place,
Till Jesus saved me by His grace. —Charles J. Butler
