BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS A Longing for Heaven

A Longing for Heaven

Like the post? Why not make it Facebook official. ⇊

I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me.

—Philippians 1:23

Have you ever been homesick? Maybe you were in a really beautiful place. But as they say, there’s no place like home.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


I think I’m becoming more of a homebody as I get older. As you get a little older, you start to like things a certain way. No matter where you are, it’s never quite like home.

There’s a home waiting for every child of God, a home we all should be homesick for. It’s the future destination of all believers, and it’s called heaven. And though we have never been to heaven, we still have something God has built within us that gives us this homesickness, this desire to be there.

Have you ever had one of those moments when everything seemed just perfect, as though it came straight out of a movie? Maybe it was an amazing sunset, a perfect star-filled night, or a special moment with someone you love. You thought, “This is so great. I want my entire life to be exactly like this moment.”

In a limited sense you had a glimpse of eternity. You had a taste of what is ahead, something that is perfect, flawless. But you can’t experience it on this earth. And until that day, you always will be a little bit homesick for heaven.

I love the way the apostle Paul put it when he wrote, “I’m torn between two desires: I long to go and be with Christ, which would be far better for me. But for your sakes, it is better that I continue to live.” (Philippians 1:23–24).

When Jesus Christ is at the forefront of your life, you can live a life that is rich and full on this earth and know that beyond the grave, there is something better: that wonderful place called heaven.

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive. Running a website is not only expensive, it also takes a lot of time and effort.

No one likes ads, but very few people will donate, hence the reason most of us have ads.
