Therefore, beloved, looking forward to [the end of this age], be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless. 2 Peter 3:14
Without knowing where you want to go, a GPS system has no idea what course to plot. Such a fact calls to mind the old saying, “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” But once you know your destination, lots of other decisions can be made: travel time, weather, eating arrangements, road and traffic conditions, and more. Destination is everything when it comes to making purposeful decisions.
Destination is also critical when it comes to living a purposeful spiritual life. If heaven is our eternal destination, then we gain the ability to live now in light of that destination. For example, we know that there will be a judgment of the works of our life that will determine the rewards we receive in heaven (Romans 14:10; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10). If we want to be rewarded then, we must live in light of that judgment now.
Is heaven your destination? Live in a way now that will bring the greatest fulfillment and joy then.
Perfect holiness is the aim of the saints on earth, and it is the reward of the saints in Heaven. Joseph Caryl
