The Holy Spirit has guaranteed you an inheritance, which includes your place in heaven. What a huge blessing this is! The most wonderful and spectacular destination any human can have has been secured for you by God's Holy Spirit. If you were going to take the vacation of a life time would you be silent about your upcoming journey? Would you plan for it? Would you think of all the great things you would do on this once-in-a- lifetime trip? I think the answer to these questions is obvious.
Now let's compare this grand earthly journey with the one you will take one day. Actually, the two are not worth comparing as the trip that says destination: Heaven – is the grandest journey of all.
One reason we lose credibility with our children and those to whom we attempt to tell about Christ is that heaven is not important in the way we live daily life. We like the idea of heaven, we just don't want to miss out on anything here on planet earth. Are we more excited about a sports team or politics than we are about being with God in heaven?
Do you live for heaven, God's heaven? Or is the world too attractive? As long as God leaves you here on the planet, you should enjoy the beauty of creation and relationships as his precious gifts. These things, however, should not turn us from the wonder that is pledged by God's Spirit.
