Christians who believe Jesus Christ is Lord (fully God and fully man), that He must be your Lord in order to be your Savior, and that salvation is all God's doing and none of ours. Most of us are from the PMR group (Pretty Much Reformed)

    Why do you want to go to Heaven?

    Post by Adam on Fri Mar 13, 2009 6:57 am

    To avoid Hell?

    To live in a Christian utopia?

    To see what dreams will be fulfilled for us?

    How about to see and spend time with God, getting to know Him more and more each moment.

    John 17:24Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am,to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

    We don't have a "Like" or "Thanks" button, but if we did, I would have clicked it! This is all too easily forgotten.

    "How about to see and spend time with God, getting to know Him more and more each moment."

    True, but we can do that on earth as well to a lesser extent.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the "no more tears" aspect. This world has a lot of pain and suffering.

    Very good post...

    A couple of months ago I was thinking about God wiping every tear away from our eyes. That's so awesome that words can't describe it, but what I finally came to realize is what exactly makes it awesome.

    GOD will wipe every tear from our eyes. GOD is doing it. It's not the fact that we're just in a happy place, it's the fact that GOD is removing our pain, sorrows, etc...

    Townend:

    I long to be where the praise is never ending
    Yearn to dwell where the glory never fades
    Where countless worshippers shall share one song
    And cries of 'Worthy' will honour the Lamb
