In God, heaven

“The Scriptures constantly teach that man’s only true happiness is in God, and that his full happiness in God cannot be attained in this life, but that believing men have that happiness assured to them in the life to come.  Commenting on John 14:6, Godet says, ‘Jesus here substitutes the Father for the Father’s house.  For it is  not in heaven that we are to find God, but in God that we are to find heaven.’”

Alexander Whyte, An Exposition on the Shorter Catechism, page 137.
