The Whole Purpose of the Christian's Life

Whatever is not an exhibition that God exists misses the whole purpose of the Christian's life now on the earth.
According to the Bible, we are to be living a supernatural life now, in this present existence, in a way we shall never be able to do again through all eternity. We are called upon to live a supernatural life now, by faith. Eternity will be wonderful, but there is one thing heaven will not contain, and that is the call, the possibility, and the privilege of living a supernatural life here and how by faith before we see Jesus face-to-face. 
--Francis Schaeffer, True Spirituality (Tyndale House, 2011), 64
