"Then I saw a new Heaven and a new earth......
I have been reading two books recently that have given me glimpses into Heaven. "Heaven Is For Real" is a true story about a 3 yr old boy who nearly died from a ruptured appendix. During this time he went to Heaven and describes it in vivid detail to his parents over the years. The second book is called, "Flight To Heaven" and tells the true story of a man who was the sole survivor of a plane crash resulting in life threatening injuries. Forty years later he tells the story of his trip to Heaven while on the operating table, and what he saw while there. Both of these people~ a toddler and a man who was 19 at the time, were profoundly changed by their experiences. Their concern for the salvation of others is always a priority for them. The love they felt while in Heaven is seen in others by how they live every single day.
Most of us will experience a taste of Heaven before we leave this earth for good. We can only imagine from what others say, and from what we read about in the Bible. Still, to know that it is a wonderful place....filled with glory and grace, as a Sunday School song says.....this is knowledge that we can tuck away in our hearts. And we don't have to wait to experience Heaven to manifest the desire to bring others to Christ so that they may one day too, be amazed by what Heaven has to offer!
Some day we will all be filled with all the glory and grace Heaven has to offer. Until that time comes, may God give us all a hunger to tell others about Christ. May we be willing to open our hearts to those in need and share the good news!
"Heaven is a wonderful place
Filled with glory and grace
I'm gonna see my Savior's face
Heaven is a wonderful place....
.....I'm going there........."
