As I was reading today…In John Flavel


  
Psal. 73:25. “Whom have I in heaven but thee?” If it could be supposed (saith one) that God should withdraw from the saints in heaven, and say, Take heaven, and divide it among you; but as for me, I will withdraw from you; the saints would fall a weeping in heaven, and say, Lord, take heaven, and give it to whom thou wilt; it is no heaven to us, except thou be there: Heaven would be very Bochim to the saints without God. In this, our glory in heaven consists, to be ever with the Lord, 1 Thess. 4:17. God himself is the chief part of a saint’s inheritance; in which sense, as some will understand, Rom. 8:1. they are called heirs of God.
