2 Corinthians 12:9 Remember it is not just compensation, but transformation, that you are to seek. Not heaven yet that looms before us always, tempting us on; but now the earth, with all its duties, sorrows, difficulties, doubts, and dangers. We want a faith, a truth, a grace to help us now, right here, where we are stumbling about, dizzied and fainting with our thirst. And we can have it. One who was man, yet mightier than man, has walked the vale before us. When He walked it He turned it all into a well of living water. To them who are willing to walk in His footsteps, to keep in His light, the well He opened shall be forever flowing. Nay, it shall pass into them and fulfill there Christ’s own words: “Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14).
