As I get older, knowing that I have
lived a lot more years than I have left, I often have
thoughts about Heaven! This is such an amazing thing! God
designed the earth for us so it could sustain life and we
could live here. But He also designed Heaven for us, and He
wants us to live there with Him forever.
The Bible says in Matthew 25:34,
“Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom
prepared for you from the creation of the world” (NLT).
From the very beginning, God knew that there would be more
to life than just this life on Earth. As much as I enjoy my
earthly home, I’m looking forward to my heavenly home.
There’s more to life than just here
and now. Today the life span for Americans is 79.8 years.
However long we live, we are going to spend those years on
this planet, but you can spend eternity — trillions
and trillions and trillions of years — living in Heaven with
Ephesians 1:10 says, “This was
his purpose: that when the time is ripe he will gather us
all together from wherever we are — in heaven or on earth —
to be with him in Christ forever” (TLB).
You were made to last forever. The
question is, where will you last forever: Heaven or Hell?
You get to choose which door you go
through at the end of your life. Hebrews 13:14 says, “For
this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward
to a home yet to come” (NLT). Once you become a part of
God’s family, there’s a whole lot more to life than just
here and now.
If you were to drop dead this
moment, are you absolutely certain you will go to Heaven? If
you’re not, you can make sure right now. Why put it
off? You need to settle this issue, and you need to put your
trust in God’s plan for your salvation. You need to accept
his free gift of eternal life. You can pray a prayer like
this today if you are ready to invite Jesus Christ into your
life as your Savior and Lord:
