Think about the most beautiful place you’re ever been. Perhaps it was a fantastic ocean resort or a serene mountain setting that literally took your breath away.
Now magnify that beauty by a thousand and we haven’t even come close to what God has in store for those who love Him.
We can’t fathom it. It is far too wondrous for us to understand and yet Jesus, the Creator of the universe, is preparing a place for His followers. He’s designing a specific place for each of us who claim Him as our Savior.
From His previous work of mountain ranges, ocean settings, stunning fall colors, the heavenly night sky, I can sure recommend Him as an architect.
The psalmist thought so too. He said, “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.” Psalm 84:10-12
Jesus told his disciples that He was going to prepare a place. He’s been working on it for 2000 years. When you consider that it only took 6 days to create the universe, the place He’s preparing is going to be amazing. If you don’t know for sure that you have a place secured in heaven, you can. Today can be your day. It starts with a simple prayer of repentance and then asking Jesus to be your Savior and Lord.
Kind of like this:
Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. Please forgive me for my sins. I accept You as my Savior and Lord. Help me now to live for You. Thank You for saving me and allowing me to be one of Your followers.
