There is No Home Like Heaven
Jesus said many things to His apostles (just a few hours before His betrayal) as He endeavored to prepare them for His departure. The Lord offered these encouraging words in John 14:1-3 - "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

Yes indeed, heaven is a wonderful place! Although I've never been there, I plan to go one day. As much as I like my home here on Earth, I know it is not intended to last forever. Nothing can compare to the eternal home God has prepared for us to live with Him! Heaven is better in every way than life on Earth. Consider some of the awesome descriptions of heaven conveyed in the book of Revelation:

Although it is difficult for us to understand a spiritual place like heaven (or hell) with the limits of human language, we must believe that such exists. We must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus and the heavenly goal He has put before us. This should motivate and energize us when we are tempted to quit. We must not lose sight of eternal life in heaven with Almighty God!

Let's close with I Peter 1:3,4 - "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance, incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you." Friends, there is no home like heaven; there is just no comparison!
