HEAVEN?

From the Pastor’s Study,

 

“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Phil. 3: 20

 

In my message from last Sunday, I spoke of heaven. It has really consumed my thoughts for the past week. I mean more than usual. A lot of people wonder what heaven will be like. ‘Will we have beds? Are we going to sleep? Will we eat? How old will we be? What will we do?… I don’t know the answers to those questions, but that doesn’t bother me.

 

1 John 3:2 tells us that “It has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we will be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” We don’t have to know!

 

Let me tell you what heaven will be like… It’s going to be the presence of all that is good, and the absence of all that is evil. If that isn’t enough… Heaven is going to be all that the loving heart of God can conceive, and the omnipotent hand of God can prepare. That’s what heaven is going to be. It’s a present place; it’s a perfect place; and it’s a purposeful place.

 

The church here on earth is a foretaste of heaven. Those who have made Jesus Christ Lord will be together for eternity. We gather around His Word, the centrepiece for our worship and fellowship. When we gather in His name, He joins us…

 

Sunday morning at 10:30 we meet at 60 Melville Rd. Our journey through John’s gospel finds us in chapter 3: 22 – 30 this week, as we seek to see ‘Who is this Jesus.’ Sunday evening at 7:00 and Bible Study Wed. at 7 PM.
