For what is one proof of immortality? Not the analogies of nature from a narrow grave; or the emancipation of the butterfly; for who does not know how shadowy and unsubstantial these intellectual proofs become in unspiritual frames of mind? No; the life of the spirit is the evidence. Heaven begun is the living proof that makes heaven become credible. "Christ in you is the hope of glory." It is the eagle eye of faith which penetrates the grave. and so far into the tranquil things of death. He alone can believe in mortality who feels the resurrection in him already. --[I. W. Robertson.]
