For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

Happiness, Intense Joy, And Ecstasy In The Beautiful Christ

Andrew Bonar wrote:
Christ in the circle of His disciples would make them so happy that none would remark upon the [lack] of John or Peter. Christ as "Lamb in the midst of the throne" is able to give intense joy to millions upon millions, His look, voice, smile, presence. Oh to see "the King in His beauty!" We shall be sick of love, and yet find all health in that love. "All my springs are in Thee."

It will be ecstasy to have made this attainment, to love the Lord our God with all our heart and soul and strength and mind . . . Those who have real love to Christ always wish they had more.

Of all things beware of a cold heart.

Christ will not let anything interfere with your love for Him. He says, "I am all for you, and you must be all for Me."

Andrew Bonar, Heavenly Springs (Carlisle: Banner Of Truth, 1986), 82-83.
