They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.…
In heaven there are —
I. NO ANXIETIES. In that world there is "no more curse." There, too, sickly bodies will Hover be seen. There the head shall languish and ache no more. The eyes shall no longer refuse to see, nor the cars to listen. There no paralysis cripples. There no nerves tremble and are afraid. The inhabitant of that bright city shall no more say, "I am sick." There all labour and anxiety for provision for yourselves and families will be ended.
II. NO BEREAVEMENTS. Our Saviour tells you that, if you are amongst "the children of the resurrection," you and your departed relatives who loved Christ shall meet again, and that thenceforward neither they nor you will "die any more." There are no graves in heaven.
III. NO SIN IN OTHERS.
IV. NO SIN IN OURSELVES.
(C. Clayton, M. A.)
