Are you despairing or rejoicing?

Posted: February 11, 2012 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship, The Christian Life

“Many Christians dread the thought of leaving this world. Why? Because so many have stored up their treasures on earth, not in heaven. Each day brings us closer to death. If your treasures are on earth, that means each day brings you closer to losing your treasures. He who lays up treasures on earth spends his life backing away from his treasures. To him, death is loss.

He who lays up treasures in heaven looks forward to eternity; he’s moving daily toward his treasures. To him, death is gain. He who spends his life moving toward his treasures has reason to rejoice. Are you despairing or rejoicing?” – Randy Alcorn

    In gratitude to Jesus Christ, I am rejoicing! (& I really like Randy Alcorn!)
    When I think that maybe the reason I am so looking forward to Heaven is because I am old!
    But then I talk to my grandkids (& they are young) and they are so looking forward to going to Heaven. We, worshipers of our Redeemer, Jesus, really can’t wait to get to Heaven -to spend Eternity with Him…halleulia!
