How Rich Are They Who Have Heaven

The Celestial City and the Rivers of Bliss by John Martin,jpg

Thomas Halyburton, The Great Concern of Salvation (Works, p. 151):

Such as do believe, whatever their circumstances may be at present, are in an unspeakably happy condition. They have an interest in the great salvation; and what losses will not this compensate and make up? How rich are they who have heaven, and all the means leading to it, as theirs? They have a good title to, and shall at length be actually possessed of, that rich inheritance of the saints in light; James 2:5, “Hearken my beloved brethren, hath not God chosen the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?”
