What do we believers look forward to the most? Two words: Eternal Life. We look forward to going home and being with our beloved God and Savior Jesus Christ and all of our family of believers who we all love so much, especially our God. That's the whole reason Jesus came to Earth. To offer us the gift of Eternal Life in Heaven instead of the Eternal Death in Hell that we deserve, which we really do. But Jesus came to offer us an alternative choice. Which is Heaven through Him. He wants us to be with Him for eternity, but we must choose whether or not to accept this free gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering to go to Heaven or completely reject it and throw it in the garbage. It's our choice. WE must make that choice. Thank the Lord Jesus that He came to save us and offer us Heaven even though we do not deserve it. "And this is the promise that He promised us, even eternal life." 1 John 2:25 Amen.
