As Christians one day we will spend eternity with God. We will experience fully everything our hearts hunger for… everything we have been created for. Joy will fill our hearts and never depart from us again. When we are with God, we are in heaven for heaven is where ever God is.
Heaven is God’s kingdom. It is where His rules, principles, and ways are observed. This happens in God’s presence. Therefore when God invades earth, heaven comes with Him.
As we read the Gospels, we see the Son of God restoring heaven to earth. He disarms the power of sin, removes its sentence of death, restores people to God, and offers new life to all.
As Christians we have the potential to live Emmanuel lives – God with us. We are taught to pray for God’s kingdom come and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). We are to be continually filled with God’s Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). We are to be temples of the living God (1 Corinthians 6:19). As we bring the presence of God to our world, we bring heaven with Him. Where heaven is, the benefits of heaven reside. Let’s bring the life-giving benefits that only God can give to the people around us. We allow others to experience what heaven is like, because heaven is where God is.
