I’m going to take a different approach to today’s topic, H is for Heaven.
First, a couple of scripture verses that describe Heaven and Hell as real destinations:
There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? (Jesus in John 14:2)
“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. (Jesus in Matthew 7:13)
There’s a lot of interest in Heaven these days, and in life after death. Much has been written by people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. If you are interested in exploring the subject in greater depth, these are resources that I recommend:
Joni Eareckson Tada’s Heaven is Your Real Home
Randy Alcorn’s Heaven
James Bryan Smith’s imaginative and speculative account, Room of Marvels
Today’s prayer (paraphrases of Psalm 89:6 and 73:25): Who in all of heaven can compare with You, Lord? What mightiest angel is anything like You? Who else have I in heaven but You? [May I] desire You more than anything on earth.
