I know that in our society today, church doesn't seem to be very important. There are so many things calling for our attention that we have to choose what best fits our needs and interests. And some of the choices we have are good things, valuable things, even important things.
But when we stop and take an honest look, doesn't attending God's house of worship seem pretty important? Think about this: what else today can offer youcomfort in troubling times, and a mansion in a heavenly place? The Bible gives us the very words of Jesus in John 14, starting with verse one; "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust alse in Me. In My Father's house are many rooms (King James versions says mansions); if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also many be where I am."
Then think about this. Is there anything, anyone, or anyplace in our world that can offer you a place to live where they pave the streets with gold? A place where the foundations are built using precious stones such as sapphires, jasper, emeralds, amethyst, and topaz among others? That's part of the vision John gives us from the Book of Revelation.
There is more...Is there anyplace in this world where we can find complete comfort and release from all stress, trials, and temptaions? Can we find a place anywhere in our wold where we are free from pain, sorrow, heartache, and grief? In the 21st chapter of Revelation, John gives us what the Lord told him about heaven. He said that once we make it to heaven, that God will "wipe every tear from their(us) eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
I don't know about you, but I want to go to heaven when I leave this world! What about you? But contrary to popular belief, not everybody automatically goes to heaven. In fact, nobody just automatically goes to heaven. The Word of God tells us straightforward, that the only way to go to heaven is by being forgiven of our sins by the shed blood of Christ on the cross, and then living in complete obedience to everything Jesus tells us to do or not to do.
God set His wonderful plan of salvation into actions so that we could choose heaven of our own free will. The Bible tells us: "For God so loved the world (you and me) that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have erternal life."
God loves each of us so much that He willingly gave His only Son, Jesus, to come to earth and be our sacrifice so we could be forgiven of our sins.
Are you ready to for heaven? Have you asked Jesus to forgive you and cleanse you from all sin so you can make it to heaven? If you're not sure how to do that, come on by. We will be glad to help you find the right way to heaven.
