What is your concept of heaven?
“How happy are those who fear the Lord — all who follow his ways! You will enjoy the fruit of your labor. How happy you will be! How rich your life!”
Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
He died for us so that we can live with him forever, whether we are dead or alive at the time of his return.
Made for another world
Most of us find it very difficult to want “Heaven” at all — except in so far as “Heaven” means meeting again our friends who have died. One reason for this difficulty is that we have not been trained: Our whole education tends to fix our minds on this world. Another reason is that when the real want for Heaven is present in us, we might not recognize it. Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world. There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never quite keep their promise.
“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
