“Already, Not Yet”

qotdayAlready, Not Yet

“Although in one sense the inheritance of this world lies yet in the future, yet in another sense it has already begun to be realized in principle and become ours in actual possession. The two spheres of the earthly and the heavenly life do not lie one above the other without touching at any point; heaven with its gifts and powers and joys descends into our earthly experience like the headlands of a great and marvelous continent projecting into the ocean.” __Geerhardus Vos [“Running the Race,” sermon in “Grace and Glory”]
