Spurgeon, the great British pastor, put it this way: My happiest moments are when I am worshiping God, really adoring the Lord Jesus Christ, and having fellowship with the ever-blessed Spirit. . . . To me it is the nearest approach to what it will be in heaven. When you think about the great joys of the Christian life, that quote gets to the core issue: Worshiping God, in spirit and in truth it's the closest thing to heaven on earth.
