Scripture Reading: Revelation 22:1–5
Key Verse: Revelation 21:27
But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
Do you ever wonder what heaven will be like? John Newton said, “If I ever reach heaven I expect to find three wonders there: first, to meet some I had not thought to see there; second, to miss some I had expected to see there; and third, the greatest wonder of all, to find myself there.”
The Bible tells us that heaven is a very definite place. Jesus said, “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” (John 14:2).
Do you know if you will be in heaven? Do you know how to get there? It is not something you can work to make happen. You cannot earn your way. There is only one way to receive eternal life—accept what Jesus Christ did at the cross.
The Crucifixion is God’s way of making it possible for every single person who believes in Jesus Christ to spend eternity in heaven. The Bible tells us that when you are saved by the grace of God, you become a citizen of heaven. Your name is in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Revelation 21:27).
As His child, God wants you to have a personal relationship with Him now and for eternity. As you anticipate with great joy your eternal future, hunger and thirst to know God more each day.
Lord Jesus, I am speechless at the thought of You preparing a place in heaven for me. I am unworthy. Thank You for dying for me so I could spend eternity with You.
