Experiencing God and His Rewards

Diligently seeking God (see my last post) is required by God in order for us to be rewarded by God. What does that mean? Seeking Him diligently is seeking Him with all our heart, turning to Him with all our heart, singing, shouting, being glad, and rejoicing with all our heart.

2 Things a Heavenly Vision Does for Us

Let me say something that might sound a little outrageous to you—our best days on this earth don’t even come close to comparing to our days in heaven. When we realize this truth it should do two things for us: A heavenly vision should help us loosen our grip on our earthly life and all […] Continue reading…
