“HEAVEN IS A WONDERFUL PLACE,” Conclusion!

Read John 14:1-6 again.

I believe that there are two big surprises waiting for us when we get to heaven: who is there and who is not.

HEAVEN IS A WONDERFUL PLACE BECAUSE WE WILL SEE OUR SAVIOUR THERE.

HEAVEN IS WONDERFUL PLACE BECAUSE WE WILL SEE OUR CHRISTIAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS THERE.

HEAVEN IS A WONDERFUL PLACE BECAUSE WE WILL SEE OUR LOVED ONES THERE.

We know very little about heaven, but I once heard a theologian describe it as “an unknown region with a well-known resident,” and there is not a better way to think of it than that. Richard Baxter expresses the thought in these lines:

My knowledge of that life is small,

The eye of faith is dim,

But it’s enough that Christ knows all,

And I shall be with him.

To those who have learned to love and trust Jesus, the prospect of meeting him face to face and being with him forever is the hope that keeps us going, no matter what life may throw at us. James Packer, Your Father Loves You,  Harold Shaw Publishers, 1986.

Here in this world, He bids us come; there in the next, He shall bid us welcome. John Donne.
