How many times may we have stood captured by the majesty of nature and said, “It can’t be far from here to Heaven”. Well, in reality, Heaven is actually only a couple of breaths away. We as God’s people shouldn’t look at some distant star and say, “That’s how far away my home is.” Heaven is closer than we think.
But for many in this world, Heaven is an uncertainty. Jesus said, “I am the door, if any man come unto me he shall be saved”. What an amazing promise that is. Heaven, where tears never fall, night never comes, death never stalks, and troubles will be laid down. The poet said,
“Tell me, my secret soul, o tell me hope and faith,
Is there no resting place from sorrow, sin and death?
Is there no happy spot, where mortals may be blest,
Where grief may find a balm and weariness a rest?
Faith, hope, and love, best tools to mortals given,
Waved their bright wings and whispered,
Yes, in the place that is called Heaven.”
As you and I live and work in this world we should be fully aware that eternity is forever, Heaven is real and death is certain. How far are you from Heaven?
John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto Him, I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me.”
