Whoever expects Christ will experience the Savior, whether he lives or dies. There is thus no such thing as death where God’s kingdom is concerned. It is not a matter of wanting to leave the world behind; the one who wants to forsake the world abandons God’s will. It is extremely important that the work of preparing the way is already undertaken on earth; it is not heaven that needs to be conquered but the earth. Would that we were all ready to focus on this divine goal!
