Sometimes we forget. Certainly, we find it essential to concentrate on those doctrines that affect our lives here and now. And yes, we have the great obligation to battle the stubborn residue of sin in our lives for the purpose of honoring the Lord in holiness. But in all of this obedience, we sometimes forget that it has a broader point. This present life prepares us for eternity. Praise God for reminding me of the heaven that awaits Christians by leading me to this Isaac Watts hymn.
