Christian’s Desire

Prudence: ‘And what is it that makes you so desirous to go to Mount Zion?’

Christian: ‘Why, there I hope to see Him alive that did hang dead on the cross; and there I hope to be rid of all those things, that to this day are in me an annoyance to me: There they say there is no death, and there I shall dwell with such company as I like best. For, to tell you truth, I love Him, because I was by Him eased of my burden; and I am weary of my inward sickness: I would fain be where I shall die no more, and with the company that shall continually cry, Holy, Holy, Holy.’

(Pilgrim’s Progress, 51)

*Isa 25:8, Rev. 21:4
