Is Heaven All We Hope For?
The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. - Psalm 19:1
Is heaven all we hope for? Dr. R. G. Lee, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was on his deathbed in a coma when suddenly his eyes opened and he exclaimed to his daughter, “I see heaven.” She said, “Tell me about it,” to which Rev. Lee replied, “Oh, my sermons never did it justice. I see your mother. I see Jesus. It’s so beautiful.” One of the past century’s greatest preachers couldn’t do it justice. Human language is simply inadequate to describe it.
I remember standing at the edge of the Grand Canyon, and for a moment, I stood in awe at the grandeur of the sight. I walk on a quiet beach, and I’m in awe of God’s creation. But as magnificent as these are, they are nothing compared to heaven.
Imagine being in the presence of the King of the universe and all who follow Him. What a sight that will be! It will be greater than we can hope or imagine. So don’t miss out. The key for getting there is knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord.
