Heaven: the Journey

Sometimes, even as followers Christ, we may go hours, days or even weeks without thinking about heaven. It would do us well to rearrange our thinking concerning the Eternal Life to come. Jonathan Edwards put this much more brilliantly when he said:

“How worthy is heaven, that your life should be wholly spent as a journey towards it. To what better purpose can you spend your life? How can you better employ your strength, use your means, and spend your day, than in traveling the road that leads to the everlasting enjoyment of God; to his glorious presence; to the new Jerusalem; to the heavenly mount Zion; where all your desires will be filled, and no danger of ever losing your happiness?”

If you would like to know more about the road that leads to everlasting life feel free to send me a note in the following box. Please include your email address so I can respond.
