“For I know that You will bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living.” – Job 30:23
If you are in Christ, you may well bear your trials, for death will put an end to all your troubles. If a man on a journey is not well accommodated where he lodges only for a night, he will not trouble himself much about the matter because he is not staying there; it certainly is not his home.
So we are on the road to eternity. Let it not distress us that we meet with some hardships in the “inn of this world”. Worry not, if it is not as well with you as it is with some others. One man travels with an expensive car, another with a lesser; but either of them will serve the same purpose. It is of no great concern which is yours; both will be laid aside when you come to your journey’s end.
The Christian, indeed, is on a well-spent journey into eternity, leaving this world — all of it — behind forever.
