What causes a person to board a plane, train, ship or auto and head out to a distant vacation destination? Escape, to get away from the busyness and challenges of life for a while and to experience perhaps a beautiful new place.

For Christians, the final destination is Heaven. It is one of the motivating factors that keep us moving through life.

But what will it be like? What is it that draws us to it and gives us hope of being there for eternity?

Heaven is God’s Dwelling Place – 2 Chronicles 6:39

Jesus Christ is There – Colossians 3:1

All Things will Be Like New – Revelation 21:5

Heaven has Been Prepared Just for Us – John 14:3

Heaven has a Zero Crime Rate – Matthew 6:20

We’ll Never be Sad in Heaven – Isaiah 60:20

No One will Cry or Be in Pain – Revelation 21:4

No Alarm Clocks or Deadlines in Heaven – Revelation 21:23

We’ll Never Grow Old in Heaven – 1 Corinthians 15:52

Heaven’s Beauty is Indescribable – 1 Corinthians 2:9 

Wow! I want to go, don’t you?
