Life
"Go forth today, by the help of God's Spirit, vowing and declaring that in life --- come poverty, come wealth, in death --- come pain or come what may, you are and ever must be the Lord's. For this is written on your heart, 'We love Him because He first loved us.'"

The Life to Come
"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life."—1 John 5:11-12

Charles E. Fuller, the radio evangelist and founder of Fuller Seminary once received a letter: "Next Sunday you are to talk about heaven. I am interested in that land because I have held a clear title to a bit of property there for over fifty-five years. I did not buy it. It was given to me without money and without price. But the donor purchased it for me at a tremendous sacrifice... "There is a valley of deep sorrow between the place where I live in California and that to which I shall journey in a very short time. I cannot reach my home in the City of God without passing through the dark valley of shadows. But I am not afraid, because the best friend I ever had went through the same valley alone long, long ago and drove away all the gloom. He has stuck by me through thick and thin... and I hold His promise in printed form, never to forsake, nor to leave me alone... . "I hope to hear your sermon on heaven next Sunday from my home, but I have no assurance that I shall be able to do so. My ticket to heaven has no date marked for the journey—no return coupon—and no permit for baggage. Yes, I am ready to go and may not be here while you are talking next Sunday, but I shall meet you there some day." Today, breathe a prayer of relief and praise that Christ is with you both on earth and in heaven.

"I am yet in the land of the dying, but I hope soon to be in the land of the living."—John Owen
 
There's a lot to be learned from history, and this volume, From Generation to Generation, puts a distinctly spiritual spin on lessons from the past. Drawing upon the famous and the ordinary of years gone by, From Generation to Generation finds nuggets of Godly wisdom in every story, making practical application for today. Beginning with a scripture, each entry includes a short edifying story, a miniature lesson, and a quote, hymn, or additional piece from the Word of God to finish up. In this devotional the reader can find wisdom and encouragement in the triumphs and tragedies of men and women from the past and present--such as Matthew Henry, Charles Swindoll, Oswald Sanders, C.S. Lewis, and William Shakespeare.
