From Spurgeon’s sermon, “God in the Covenant”
What is heaven,
but to be with God,
to dwell with him,
to realize that God is mine,
and I am his?
“I will be their God.”
This is the master-piece of all promises;
it is the top-stone of all the great and precious things,
which God has provided for his children.
If we could really grasp it, if it could be applied to our soul and
we could understand it, we might clap our hands and say,
“Oh! the glory, oh! the glory, oh! the glory of that promise!”
it makes a heaven below, and it must make a heaven above,
for nothing else will be wanted but that, “I will be their God.”
