Heaven: A Prepared Place

“Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.”

Heard this statement during our lesson Sunday morning. It resonates. Want to go to Heaven? Me too. And we must be prepared.

To be prepared, we must seek and find the truth. And we must seek that truth first and above all!

“Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

Everyone’s seeking something. Christ tells us in Matthew to seek first the kingdom of God. If we are not, then we are replacing His position with something, someone, or somewhere else.

Are we seeking THE truth? The one, single truth that prepares us for Heaven? And are we seeking it first?

Truth transcends political parties, policy debates, cults of personality, denomination…it’s bigger than you and me. Truth is permanent; existing beyond generations, indestructible, and not wanting of your or my approval.

Truth exists whether or not it’s shared thru a meme; whether or not we give a thumbs-up. By definition, it’s true whether we like it or not. The Truth is immutable (unchanging and unchangeable). It’s the same today as it has always been.

The Lord has prepared a place for those who seek Him above all.

“The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)

“Jesus saith unto [Thomas], ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

“And ye will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” (John 8:32)

  1. It is great to have perpared for a long time, physically and spiritually. Do not forget this, though. Jesus told that parable about the people who were hired in the morning to work for a certain amount. He then kept hiring all day and into the evening, promising the same pay. Then at the last hour people came and agreed to work for the same pay. At the end he paid them all the same pay, the rate which each had agreed to. This made the people who had been there longer, upset.

    There will be people who have lacked the joy of the gospel of Jesuss Christ all their lives. Those who have had it always with them cannot say, “wait, not fair. I was WAY more prepared than this newbie. Why does the newbie get as much as I get?” Keep in mind, newbie has had to endure without the knowledge of the gospel, without peace of mind or happiness it brings, all of his or her life until the end. It was harder for newbie to endure than for you.

    This was spoken in church this past Sunday. It was not originated from my brain, but sooken from the pulpit. Great thought, though! Had to share!
