The Reality of Heaven
No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. Revelation 22:3-5 NIV
You, a believer in Christ, were made to reign with Him forever and ever! You will live with Him in an eternal city, the New Jerusalem, with eternal bodies, and reign with Him over His creation. Heaven is real and our eternal destiny is assured.
The reality of heaven should impact our life today. We are passing through this life on our way to a better one, a life with the living God for eternity! Heaven is our hope and our final home.
