The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be in heaven? As we go about our daily lives, thoughts of heaven may not be something we spend much time on. Yet, for every believer, heaven is just a heartbeat away.

1 Corinthians 2:9No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him. [1] The Bible gives us brief visions or descriptions of heaven, but Paul tells us that even the best explanations are only shadows. Paul tells us our imaginations can’t begin to grasp the depth or beauty of heaven.

Jesus tells us that heaven is where our heavenly Father dwells and is preparing a home for us there. It reminds me of parents preparing a room for their expectant baby. John 14:13 Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 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? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.[2]

God Gave Isaiah a Vision of Heaven

When Isaiah was called a prophet, the Lord gave him a vision of heaven. Think how this vision inspired and made him aware of God’s holiness and his sinfulness.

Isaiah 6:1 It was in the year King Uzziah died that I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple. Attending him were mighty seraphim, each having six wings. With two wings, they covered their faces, with two, they covered their feet, and with two they flew. They were calling out to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory!” Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke. [3]

Is Heaven free?

Can something so fantastic as heaven be free? Heaven is free to us, but it cost Jesus His life to pay for our sins. Ephesians 2:God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.[4]

In God’s grace, He forgives us and calls us to faith, accepting us into His family. Salvation is the most important issue we never want to take for granted in our lifetime. It is also the most beautiful gift we can share with others as we tell them about the Good News of Jesus.
