Would it be too premature if I said, “I’m enjoying Heaven on this Earth?”
Well, lets take a look-see…
So, first of all, my description of Heaven is anywhere I can commune with Jesus.
Yes, I know that one day this body will die, and my spirit will ascend into Heaven, and I realize Heaven to be a tangible…touchable place.
After all, Jesus said this about Heaven,
“In my Father’s house are many dwelling places. If it were not so, I would have told you, because I am going there to prepare a place for you…so that where I am you may be also.”
So, yes…physically I am far…FAR away from the physical Heaven. Even the Pharisees, of long ago, questioned Jesus about the whereabouts of Heaven, and He said,
“The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
Jesus proclaims that His kingdom abides within us!
There may be thousands, upon thousands of galaxies that separate me from Heaven, the place, but guess what? Nothing, absolutely nothing, separates me from Jesus or His Love! Even the Apostle Paul agrees with me on this one, for he writes in Romans,
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So, who freaking cares how many galaxies exist between me and Heaven! It doesn’t matter because God has already set up His Kingdom within my heart! Jesus lives within me, and He wants to live in you too!
Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
Don’t wait to celebrate Heaven, dear friends!
Open the door and let’s get the party started!
Jesus Wants Us To Be Happy Christians!
