Rejoicing In Heaven

 

  I was just going about my day. The first part of it had some bumps..(nothing major…just life) and I thought of how thankful I am that my God really is enough. I couldn’t imagine going through life without my Jesus. While I have let Him down at times, He has never let me down..and never will.

   When my time on this earth is done, I promise you that I will be rejoicing in Heavenworshipping my Savior! I get excited just thinking about it!!! No more sorrow. No more pain. No more sickness. No more problems of any kind!

   I just think about the times when I am in full worship mode. Singing and praising my Savior..everything else blocked out..just focused on God. Like on Sunday mornings at my church when the Praise and Worship team are bringing it! When my Pastor is bringing God’s Word to us. The times at Bible study when we are sharing and learning and focused on Him. That is a small taste of what Heaven is going to be like. We were created to worship Him and to bring Him glory.

   Can you think of the times when you feel so close to God? When His presence is just completely enveloping you? Think about those times. You feel close and in love with Him when you are giving your all to Him, in complete surrender and with no hesitation. That is true worship. Loving Him with your everything!!!!!

   Think about the times in your life when you have been in a complete state of peace. Heaven will be better than that!

   Revelation 21:4 ~ He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

   Think about your favorite place on earth. Heaven will definitely be more awesome than that!

   What about the most beautiful sky that you have ever seen? Don’t you think it will be a million times prettier in Heaven?

   Think about the times when you have laughed until you cried. Felt great didn’t it?!

   Psalm 84:10  ~ Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.

   Heaven will provide more joy than we can imagine. We will be in the presence of Almighty God! How awesome is that?!?! See, it isn’t the beauty that is going to be so awesome, it isn’t the fact that we will suffer no more. It is the fact that we will be with our Lord and Savior..Creator…Almighty God. He is what Heaven is about.

    Just be sure that you’ll get to be rejoicing in Heaven when your time on this earth is done. If you have the assurance of salvation, my hope is that you are sharing with those that don’t have what you do. The gift of salvation is never “out of stock” or “sold out.”  

   John 14:6 ~ Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

   Jesus said that He is THE WAY to Heaven. He also promises us that there is a Heaven and that it is amazing! He promises anyone who believes in Him the gift of living eternally. The alternative is…Living your life on this earth, refusing to trust and have faith in Him, and then when your time is up..dying and going to hell. The end.

   Don’t waste another minute if you are living your life uncertain of your fate. Everyone is going to die. The question is..where are you going when you die? Want to live in pure bliss in Heaven forever??? (or there’s the alternative)

      Nobody deserves the love He gives us…that is why it’s called grace. Saving grace. Amazing grace. So, don’t even use the excuse of : “I have done too many bad things.”  A sin is a sin is a sin. His Word says that we have all sinned and that we all fall short. That’s why we all need Jesus.

   Luke 15:10 ~ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.

   Romans 3:23,24 (NIV) ~ for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

    Look for another post coming soon, about how we are to live for Jesus while on this earth. Living an intentional, radical, and life of purpose in order to bring God glory and further His Kingdom. Looking forward to sharing more with you all soon! 🙂

   Until Next Time,
