    Revelation 21:3-4, "And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.'"


    Have you ever tried to describe something that was beyond description - a breathtaking sunset, the sweet smell of a newborn baby, a majestic mountain range? It can be difficult! Why? Because it's so amazing!

    The ultimate home of those who have a relationship with Jesus is too great for us to fathom – let alone describe. In the book of Revelation, the most valuable and beautiful things on earth are used to describe the building materials of Heaven. God describes this limitless place with our limited words as He unpacks the breathtaking details of our eternal home that He so lovingly prepared for us in advance.

    Here's what's so interesting! Heaven is not only amazing because of what is there, but also what's not there. First, God is there! The One who is love, perfection, and all that is good. What more could you want? But, it's also amazing because of what cannot exist there; all the plagues, pains, and problems of this present life are gone. Can you imagine a stress-free life, without tears, without fear, without anxiety? It's possible! God has prepared a place where you can experience everything you've dreamed of - and so much more!

    Today, rejoice and consider just how great it is to have a God that loves and cares so much for us that He has prepared the way for those who love Him to spend forever with Him!


    If you have never accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, now is the time! Do it today by praying the prayer below and then ask Jesus to forgive your sins and take charge of your life! If you have already made this decision, then ask God to give you an opportunity to share your story, or invite someone to church so they can experience the same!


    Heavenly Father, Thank You for preparing a place in Heaven for me. I am grateful Jesus left the bliss of Heaven to come down to this sin-filled earth, died on the cross, and rose from the dead to give me eternal life. I surrender my life to You! In Jesus' name, Amen.
