He , the very one who descended, is also the one who ascended above all the heavens, in order to fill all things.
When Jesus rose into Heaven, he went ahead of us in order to prepare a place for us to dwell with him. He wants to receive us with everything ready on our arrival. Just as we prepare for guests, so is he doing the same.
He wants to welcome us with open arms into the banquet of salvation. He wants each of us to be a guest, with Him as our host. He wants to ensure that each of us has a proper setting at his table. How awesome is that? Jesus wants us to feel at home when we are with him. He wants us to be comfortable.
I can’t imagine what it will be like, but I am surely looking forward to being with Him.
Long ago, I used to be afraid of death, but not anymore. The closer I get to Him, the less worried I am about it. I know that on that day, when my breath expires, he will receive my spirit until the day he calls us to his table. My body will be laid to rest, but only for a short time. For on that day of resurrection, he will wake me up and lift me into Heaven above, so I can partake of the joyous celebration.
I believe in the resurrection of the saints, the reunion of God’s people, a day without precedent, where all shall arrive. Who will arrive? All who believed that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, resurrected, and is sitting at the right hand of the Father, which is the simple plan of salvation.
For that to happen, we must believe in the simple plan of salvation. We must believe in our hearts that we are saved. We must believe in our hearts that we are children of God.
If you are a believer, then I can’t wait to the day we see each other in Heaven. For in this Earth we may never meet, but in Heaven we shall share our new lives.
Prayer for the Day
Father, I believe in my heart that Jesus died for my sins, was buried, resurrected, and is now sitting at the right hand of the Father. I believe in my heart that I am saved and I am your child.
