Thought for today

"He never can save us by merely taking us away to some place called heaven--as if change of place would change the voluntary heart. There can, therefore, be no possible way to be saved but by simple faith."—Charles Finney

Ain't it the truth. Furthermore, why would someone who doesn't want to spend time with God now want to go to heaven? They would be miserable—not that hell is a decent alternative! But, the whole purpose of salvation/justification/sanctification is to be "partakers of the divine nature" as 2 Peter puts it...
