In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2
In 1964, singer Dionne Warwick recorded one of her hits, “A House Is Not a Home.” The lyrics say that an empty house—not matter how beautiful—is not a home if the one we love isn’t there.
Think of the glories of heaven! The Bible speaks of its mansions, its streets of gold, its foundations of jewels, its luminescent glow, its river of life, its endless fellowship untouched by sorrow, death, pain, or tears. But think of this—what if Jesus were not there?
What would heaven be like without the Triune God?
Our priority after death isn’t so much heaven as it is our Lord—being with Him forever!
When we think of heaven, we should consider all the biblical descriptions of the wondrous environment. We should think about our blessed reunion with our loved ones. We should enjoy thinking about the endless riches we’ll enjoy.
But most of all—there is Jesus! As you go through your day, think most of all about Him—and pray: “Even so, come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)
The most thrilling thing about heaven is that Jesus Christ will be there. I will see Him face to face. Billy Graham
