J.R. Miller on Longing for Christ

Posted by Tony Konvalin | Labels: , , , | Posted On Tuesday, July 25, 2017 at 5:30 AM

“”Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness." It is not attainment only that heaven approves, but the longing to attain. Saintliness is beautiful, but it takes a long while to reach it. No doubt one of the best things is to be perfect, to wear the image of Christ, but the lofty reach seems almost impossible. This is the goal, but it shines far off, and it seems to us that we cannot come up to it till we gain heaven. It is a comfort to us to know that one of the best things is longing for the best, hunger for righteousness.”
J.R. Miller
