“And I know such a man–whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows– how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” (2 Corinthians 12:3-4)
Do you believe in Heaven? Is it a real place for you? Those may seem like an odd questions, but our belief in Heaven changes the way we look at everything in life. The way we view time changes because we realize that one day we will be without time and therefore, we use every moment we have for eternal things. The way we view suffering changes because we understand that it is nothing to be compared to the glories of Heaven that await each believer. We view death with earnestness but, we do not fear because we know that death is simply the doorway to our Heavenly home.
Here’s the second question, “How do we make Heaven real in our life?” This one is simple. Read the Bible and believe in what God has told us about Heaven. It speaks of streets of gold, gates of pearls & the removal of all pain, yet the most exciting thing about Heaven is the presence of Jesus Himself. He will dwell with us forever. What a glorious reality. If you allow that Truth to sink into your heart, it will change your life forever.
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the promise of Heaven. Your Word tells us about an amazing place filled with goodness, love and our family and friends. Most of all, Heaven is where You will be with us, face to face, forever. Help me to understand this more and more every day, and help the reality of Heaven stir me up into passionate evangelism so that others can join me there. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
