Towards the heavenly life…

…God does not bestow the honourable title of his children on any but those who acknowledge that they are strangers on the earth, and who not only are at all times prepared to leave it, but likewise move forward, in an uninterrupted “course,” towards the heavenly life.

Calvin, Harmony of the Gospels, vol. 3, p. 163
