Heaven

leave a comment »

At church and in my small group we have been studying heaven.

Before we started, honestly, I didn’t understand the importance of doing a deep study on heaven.

After all, it is a perfect place in the presence of God and it lasts forever…..and I am going there someday. That was good enough for me.

Several weeks into this study, I am beginning to understand why God provides glimpses of heaven in His Word.

Here is what I am learning…….

  • Focusing on the eternal nature of heaven allows me to more clearly see the temporal nature of this world and all the stuff in it.
  • Focusing on the perfection of heaven allows me to more clearly see the brokenness of this world and everyone in it (including me).
  • Focusing on the magnificence of heaven allows me to more clearly see the insignificance of my possessions in this world.
  • Focusing on heaven allows me to more clearly see that I need to live differently.
