The truth is, it is not us who goes to heaven but rather heaven that has been brought to us. Heaven is not a home where we go when we die but rather a home that God has given to us now, through His son Jesus Christ. We should stop thinking of heaven as a place of final destination after we die, but rather something that God intended for us to experience in the lives that we live.
Heaven can be described as a place of goodness, a place of peace and a place of joy. Some call it paradise. It is where God intended for you to live both now and forever.
So how do we experience heaven now? The Bible teaches us that it begins by just believing. Believe that God wants you to have a good life filled with peace and filled with joy. Do you remember what the thief on the cross next to Jesus asked? He asked if Jesus would remember him when he entered into the kingdom of heaven. Jesus replied, “today, you will be with me in paradise.” Paradise has been given to all who believe this truth, today.
Do you believe that paradise is available to you today? Do you believe that Jesus loves you that much?
Why don’t you say this prayer today with me: “Jesus I believe that you love me and I believe that you have given heaven as my home both now and forever, A-men.”
