Christ is all the heaven I want

From today's entry in Morning by Morning, by Spurgeon:

Rutherford says, “Heaven and Christ are the same thing;”

To be with Christ is to be in heaven, and to be in heaven is to be with Christ.

That prisoner of the Lord very sweetly writes in one of his glowing letters—“O my Lord Jesus Christ, if I could be in heaven without thee, it would be a hell; and if I could be in hell, and have thee still, it would be a heaven to me, for thou art all the heaven I want.”

It is true, is it not, Christian? Does not thy soul say so?

Very nice post. it brought to mind Ps.73:25 Whom have I in heaven but Thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee.
Thanks.

Amen. I have been thinking on the same psalm, both verses 25 and 26. 73:26 "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever"
What an infinetely wonderful inheritance!
