Personalized Family Old Couple When We Get To The End Of Our Lives Together Poster
It’s God’s presence that makes heaven what it is. There will be no greater joy than to experience God’s presence in a body that is unhindered and not tainted by sin in any fashion. The fact that we get to see Jesus and spend eternity with him is the real prize of heaven. Paul alludes to this in 2 Timothy.
“Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day–and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” – 2 Timothy 4:8
If you are not careful, you will focus on the crown, but what is most important is to know that it is rewarded to those who long for his appearance. Those who have that desire recognize the real prize is his appearing.
Whatever You Think, it’s Better
“But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.'” – 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NKJV)
Whatever believers will do in heaven, it will go beyond anything we could ever imagine. It will be far greater than any experience we have ever had on earth. It will not only be better but exponentially better. Whatever you must endure now, do it with an eye on heaven because for those who have placed their trust in Jesus as savior, one day that will be your reality. Consider what Paul said.
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” – Romans 8:18
I leave you with the words of an oldie but a goodie.
“What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see.When I look upon his face the one who saved me by his grace. When he takes me by the hand and leads me to the promised land. What a day glorious day that will be.” -“What a Day That Will Be” by Jim Hill.
