Showing Posts From: Between Heaven and Earth

Longing and Preparing for Heaven

Over the last few posts I’ve written about how heaven is going to be an incredible place, and when we realize in our hearts, all that it has for us, we’ll be as torn as Paul was between heaven and earth. Psalm 84:1–2 says, “How lovely is Your tabernacle, O Lord of hosts! My soul […] Continue reading…

The Best Thing About Heaven

In several of my prior posts I’ve described heaven as being better than the Garden of Eden and the seven things we will be doing in heaven. Here’s the deal—I’ve saved the best one for last. We’ve looked at all kinds of interesting aspects and abilities in heaven, but the greatest thing about heaven is […] Continue reading…

Heaven—Better than the Garden

The goal of my last post was to whet your appetite about heaven. I want to give you a glimpse of heaven. I want to help you see its glory directly from God’s Word. I’ll be honest; I’m teasing you for a purpose. I’m whetting your appetite so you’ll desperately desire all of its benefits. […] Continue reading…

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…

As a little girl, Amy Carmichael sensed God whispering 1 Corinthians 3 into her ear. She understood that all of her works would be thrown into the fire, and only those things done for Christ would matter eternally and bring reward. Amy went on to become a missionary to India, opening an orphanage and founding a […] Continue reading…

Paul’s Motivation

He knew God had an eternal purpose for his life.”[1] The apostle Paul was motivated by a deep understanding that he would be judged for future rewards based upon how he lived his life while on this […] Continue reading…

7 Things We Will Be Doing in Heaven

When we fully understand that heaven isn’t boring, the next question seems to be, “What will we be doing?” Our resurrected bodies are raised in immortality—incorruptible (Philippians 3:20–21). Everything Jesus has we will have. Our bodies are raised in glory, honor, and power, with supernatural abilities. Our bodies may look similar in heaven, but they […] Continue reading…

Heaven Ain’t Boring

It’s both interesting and dangerous to talk about heaven. When we point out the sinless tranquility and how incredibly beautiful the new heaven and the new earth are going to be, it can lead people to an incorrect opinion that somehow this glorious creation is also a place of eternal apathy and boredom. Or, as […] Continue reading…

5 Facts That Lead to Heaven

Over the last several Blog posts we’ve taken a look at heaven. We studied Scriptures that show us that heaven, not this earth or the things of this earth, is our real hope and our real home. We’re pilgrims, not residents, on this earth. All of this makes sense if you are a believer in […] Continue reading…

A Maximized Heavenly Family

Everything will be maximized when we get to heaven. We’ll see and do things we can’t imagine with our earthly minds. Not only that, our relationships—friends and family—will be better than we can imagine while we’re still on this side of the veil. Randy Alcorn wrote: “Heaven won’t be without families; it will be one […] Continue reading…
