Heaven : Our Final Destination

Heaven Our Final Destination

You can’t give what you don’t have. How can I give love when I have hatred in my heart?

God is love (I Jn 4:16) and He has poured out this love into our hearts (Rom 5:5). So where has my love gone and what are the reasons of my heart being drained of the love of God? It is sin that robs us of the love of God. Sin never helps, sin destroys and enslaves us.

What is sin? Sin is the betrayal of the freedom God has given us, that is, breaking of God’s law.

We are made in the image and likeness of God. And our primary duty on earth is to love Him, serve Him and to be with Him in paradise, our eternal home. Salvation does not come easy, we have to work out for our salvation with fear and trembling (Phil. 2:12).

Let’s not be carried away by the pleasures of the world, or as St. Paul puts it in Rom 12:2, “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

We are ready to go to any extent, for instance, to obtain citizenship of a foreign country. We are also called to be citizens of heaven (Phil 3:20). Have you applied for one? It is Jesus who is in charge. Let us go to Him for He is the way, the truth and the life.

Who Is Our True Friend?

Jesus Christ Our True Friend

When we reflect on our past life and present, we have come across a lot of friends. Some are very close to us and some are just hi hello friends i.e. friends whom we just smile at or speak a word or two to. But who is our real friend?

A true friend is a person who guides us, holds our hand and pulls us to the right path when we go wrong, a person we can openly share our feelings with i.e. our joys, sorrows, achievements, failures etc. A person who corrects us when we go wrong, a person who is not afraid to speak frankly about what they feel about us and help us improve. That friend is also a person who encourages us and rejoices in our success and happiness.

Such sort of a true friend is hard to find in this world. I once had an experience of this sort when I was staying in a hostel, one of our room mate had a crush on a guy, but her best friend, who is also our room mate corrected her by saying, ‘think of your parents and siblings, your parents work so hard so that you can lead a good life and your younger siblings look up to you as their model, don’t fall for a guy you saw yesterday because he will never stand by you, you will get nothing by hurting your parents, but only their curse.’ After she said all this our friend started crying, she hugged her and thanked her for all that she said and forgot that guy.

Not all of us are lucky to have such a friend, but we are lucky because we have Jesus as our true friend, He always corrects us, but we seldom listen to Him. We always ignore him and lead our lives the way others say or according to what we see or hear through the media. Technology has really blinded us, it was invented to be used by man for his good, but this technology is destroying man because he does not use it for what it was invented but for evil.

Listen to the song : What A Friend We Have In Jesus

A true friend is also a person who stands by us even when we hurt them; they are ready to do anything for us. Jesus is exactly the same, He so loved us that He gave his own life for us so as to save us from our sins and life in the eternal fire.

Accept Jesus as your true friend and you will never fail in your life.

Dear brothers and sisters, pray to Jesus to be our best friend and go to give us a good friend who will lead us to God and not to the sins of this world, a person who will correct and guide us when we make mistakes.

Story : I Took Your Place

Jesus Died For You

One day, a man went to visit a church. He arrived early, parked his car, and got out. Another car pulled up near him, and the driver told him, “I always park there. You took my place!”

The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat, and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, “That’s my seat! You took my place!” The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing.

After Sunday School, the visitor went into the church sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said, “That’s where I always sit. You took my place!” The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still said nothing.

Later, as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. Someone from the congregation noticed him and called out, “What happened to you?”

The visitor replied, “I took your place.”

Jesus died for us. He took our place and died for our sins on the calvary.

Live this new life that He gave us, expressing our gratitude to Jesus for taking our place.
