While we were on our Northwest Trip, my wife and I heard someone say, “God created the world in six days. Imagine how wonderful heaven will be! He has been preparing it for Christians for more than 2000 years!” That is a neat thought.
Yesterday I told you that we were amazed when we saw God’s creation. But we know we will even be more amazed when we reach heaven. In our Bible Reading, we read that Stephen looked forward to going to heaven. People killed him by throwing stones at him. They killed Stephen because he followed Jesus. Before Stephen died, he looked up and saw the glory of God. Stephen knew that when he died, he would go to a better place.
Jesus is preparing heaven for all Christians. We can trust that heaven is better and bigger than any mansion in this world. You can live in heaven, too, if you follow Jesus and obey His Word.
