The nearness of God is our good

Contemplating Revelation 4:4, CH Spurgeon wrote:
Let believers on earth imitate the saints in heaven in their nearness to Christ. Let us on earth be as the elders are in heaven, sitting around the throne. May Christ be the object of our thoughts, the center of our lives. How can we endure to live at such a distance as our beloved?
He describes the believers in heaven.

They shall all be near to Christ, all ravished with his love, all eating and drinking at the same table with him, all equally beloved as his favorites and friends even if not all equally rewarded as servants.
I pray the same can be said about us, believers, while we're still on earth: ravished with Christ's love, forever worshiping him in our thoughts, words, and deeds.
