Far, far better things ahead

I read that quote today, by C.S. Lewis. The one that reads, "There are far far better things ahead than any we leave behind."

It is as if we have knocked out a part of the living room wall, (don't mind the mess), and there is light again. I think he says what Paul the apostle has said, about pushing forward toward the prize, and leaving behind the sin that so easily entangles. It does, doesn't it? Sin, that is. A soldier is not to be caught up in civilian pursuits...let's remember that there are far far better things ahead. It is one of the reasons we cry "Maranatha, come Lord".
