Horatius Bonar: Living in and for the Future


Horatius Bonar Quote on “Our Blessed Hope” Blog — Click Here

It is no fanaticism to live both in and for the future. It is faith, for “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Unbelief would dwell in the present, faith leads us into the future.  It displaces the visible, and brings forward the invisible. It lays hold of every thing that will open up more of the future. It prizes the prophetic word, as being its guide through that region to which it so specially lays claim as its proper portion and heritage. It treasures up every fragment of information given respecting days or ages to come, casting aside nothing, but pondering all; not shrinking from details or dates, in so far as these have been recorded by the Spirit of truth.
