Humble Hero, Page 150

Those who take Christ at His word and surrender their lives to His plans will find peace. Nothing the world does can make them sad when Jesus makes them glad by His presence. “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3.

Our lives may seem tangled, but as we submit to the wise Master Worker, He will bring out the pattern of life and character that will be to His own glory. And this life that expresses the glory—the character—of Christ will be received into the Paradise of God.

As we enter into rest through Jesus, heaven begins here. We respond to His invitation, “Come, learn from Me,” and so we begin the life eternal. Heaven is a constant approaching to God through Christ. The more we know of God, the more intense our happiness will be. As we walk with Jesus in this life, we may be filled with His love, satisfied with His presence. All that human nature can bear, we may receive here.
