“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)
