Is heaven a real place? Is it for us and how can we get there? In today’s sermon, we explore several passages in the scriptures that illustrate how heaven is real. That Jesus was at the center of Heaven and he returned there to intercede for us. We also explore how Jesus urges us to pray to our Father in heaven, commands us to store up treasure in heaven, and to rejoice that our name is written in heaven. Jesus prepared a place for us in heaven so we can go there after we die. Our view of heaven is mocked by the world but we can be sure it is real, reliable, and true. Jesus guarantees us that heaven is our home if we believe in him.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” “John 14:1-6 (NIV)
