Thankful for the Promise of Eternal Life
As God’s children we know we will live with Jesus in Heaven when our days on earth are over. Think of it. We will see Him and dwell with Him. We get to spend part of our time at His feet and listen to stories. (John 14:3) We will also get to spend time doing works we have done down here on earth.
One great thing we know about Heaven is there will be no sadness, no crying, no anxiety, no depression and no illness. Any physical anomalies we have here on earth will be removed from our bodies. Our physical beings will be perfect.
When we advance beyond the gates of heaven we will have no more stress in our lives. We will not have people or things getting on our last nerve. No one can push our buttons. We will not experience panic attacks.
Diseases will no longer enter into our lives. Just think--no more Cancer, no more Kidney Disease, and no Diabetes. Because these illnesses won’t be there, their treatments or controlling procedures will not be needed, either.
For now, we have the promise of eternal life. While we are here on this earth, we are learning about how we are to handle things and model Christ in our daily lives. God has given us this promise. As we focus on what we have to be thankful for, let’s remember this one because it's so special.
