Pleased to be there…

Since Jesus came, there have been many centuries have passed by and many have wondered when He will be coming back? He’ll come back when God tells Him that it is time. It could be tomorrow or it could be in a few minutes or next year but God doesn’t forget His promises. The angels told the disciples that Jesus would come back in the same way you saw Him go when He ascended to Heaven. They didn’t say that “He might come back”. God’s Word is not a myth or a collection of fictional stories. It was penned by men who the Holy Spirit gave those words, the Third Person of the Trinity. God has chosen each of us who believe in Jesus as our Savior and He knows us by name. There is a quote that I’m going to place here for you to consider:  Did you ever stop to think that God is going to be as pleased to have you with Him in heaven as you are to be there? A. W. Tozer

Our lives begin when we are in the womb because God places all of our personality and our gifts inside each life that is to be born before we come into this world. When we live our lives according to His principles and His wisdom we are living our best lives because we have chosen to be His. We choose this because He has chosen us when we feel that pull in our heart that tells us “there is more to life than just living day to day”. The Holy Spirit touches us and we know that we need Him in our hearts to help us with this life because living this life without Him, while it isn’t impossible, will be a life without a true purpose.

God loves each of us whether we love Him or not is our choice. Does God want to bring all of humanity into heaven? Yes, He does but there are so many who have chosen to believe in a “higher being” that isn’t God and that is what will keep many people from going to live with Him. It isn’t your sins that will condemn you to eternity in hell, it is your choice of Who you worship in this life. Whether it is yourself or another god or the Creator, Jesus Christ. Only believing in and giving your heart to Jesus will grant you entrance into “My Father’s house” as Jesus told His disciples.

This life is not the only one you have. Each one of us has an eternal soul that will live on after the physical body has died. Your destination in eternity is what you determine in this life. Have you chosen to live your life as you feel it could be done to please yourself? If you have then you are your own “god”. If you have ever felt God touch your heart to bring you to Himself then you should’ve given your heart to Jesus at that point. If you did then you are all set for eternity. If you pushed Him away and haven’t gone back to that point…what are you waiting for? Not one of us is guaranteed to live through the day today, so make sure of your eternity as soon as you can because we cannot see the future even one hour from now.
