They desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; indeed He has prepared a city for them. Hebrews 11:16 NRSV
We are headed to Heaven and that affects how we live here on earth. No matter what happens here on earth, our destiny is eternal life with God!
How do we live when our final destination is Heaven? We focus on what is eternal. We delay gratification. We focus on the future. We concentrate on things that cannot be seen, things that will last forever.
Heaven fills our thoughts. We know who created us and who is Lord of our life. We know that God created us for His purpose.
We go to Church and worship. We build relationships with God's family and we invite people to join the family! We serve others and we tell people about Jesus!
Jesus is Lord and when He is Lord of your life, Heaven is your home. Think about it! And when you do, everything changes.
