Heaven

 

When you think of heaven, what comes to mind? True paradise? Strumming a harp while lounging on a cloud? The fear of death and the unknown? Whatever it is, unless it's rooted in a journey through the Bible's teaching on the subject, it's likely a very limited (and perhaps unappealing or even fear-inducing) perspective. The reality is that God's Word paints a picture of heaven that is far better than anything we could ever imagine, and if we were to embrace what God has already revealed to us about it, it would truly be something we would joyfully anticipate for the rest of our days here on earth.

 

It's What We Were Made For

Week 1: August 5th, 2018

There's much that the Bible wants to teach us about the true nature of heaven. But it all starts with one simple yet life-altering idea - it is in fact real, and it's exactly what we were made for.


What About Now?

Week 2: August 12th, 2018

The Bible paints an amazing picture of a future Heaven God is creating for us. But what happens to those who pass away from this earth before that "future" Heaven comes to be? 


It's Not What You'd Expect

Week 3: August 19th, 2018

The picture we get from the Bible of the future Heaven that God is creating is not what you'd expect, and that's a good thing. Why? Because it appears Heaven is more about restoring all that's been broken rather than starting over with something that's completely foreign to us.


What to do, What to do?

Week 4: August 26th, 2018

Perhaps the biggest question many of us have about Heaven is, "what will we do there?" And although we certainly can't know everything we'll experience in Heaven, the Bible doesn't leave us completely to our own imaginations in trying to figure it out. Which is a good thing, because it's actually much better than anything we can imagine.


They Will See His Face

Week 5: September 2nd, 2018

There's so much for us to look forward to about Heaven. But it's being with God Himself that ultimately what makes Heaven, Heaven, as well as what makes everything else that's good about Heaven (as well our current existence here on earth) possible.
