Christian Register

We mistake immortality if we read it merely as a future promise. It is a present gift. It is not merely the offer of a hope. It ought to be the joy of a possession. The Christian life ought to be full of Easter days,—a perpetual renewal of purpose and of being from their temporal into their spiritual shape and power.

It is a superficial measuring of life that estimates it simply by its duration. Its abundance consists rather in its intensity, in its breadth and depth and height. A revelation of immortality does not greatly interest me if it merely means an infinite continuance of years. It is not altogether good tidings just to be told that we need fear no end to these burdened and misunderstanding lives of ours. Immortality is not a thing of time or place so much as of spiritual quality. It is not a matter of continuance of life so much as of fulness of life.
