I had an epiphany tonight!! =)
Dan and I used to wonder just what made heaven so great. Other than the fact that the alternative was a less than pleasant idea, logically speaking we couldn’t figure out why we would want to have a huge mansion in a city full of people. Tonight I figured it out. We were thinking of heaven as a place. But heaven isn’t a place, heaven is the presence of God.
Think of the saying “home is where the heart is.” We realize that the house doesn’t make a home, it’s the people, your family, that makes a place a home. It’s the same way with a church. The church building doesn’t make a church, it’s the people who use the building, the body of believers, that make up the church. Heaven is the same way. It’s not a building, a city, or a place, it’s the people you are surrounded with, it’s being in the presence of the Almighty God, it’s the lack of sin, pain, and death.
Now how cool is that?!!
