Longing For Heaven

READ:   Philippians 3:20 But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.

Have you ever noticed how we as humans  are not satisfied in life?  We want to see more, do more, have more .....  always MORE.   I'm not referring necessarily to material possessions or being content with what we have.  This is more of a what I  believe is a God-given longing in us to always see what's next or what more is out there. 

This longing for something else comes from the fact that we are not home.   We are living on this earth but we are really citizens of HEAVEN.     Our true contentment will come when we are home with our Lord and Savior.  

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away, Revelation 21:4

Our future home consists of:  no tears or pain, all things are new, and we are in perfect peace forever residing with and worshipping the KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS.    

Are you longing for heaven?   I am - but in the meantime we have work to do.  The Kingdom of Heaven must advance - and we have to share the LOVE of Jesus to make this happen!   Pray for someone today and turn up your volume and enjoy this song as you long for Heaven!   

This world is not my home
I’m just a passing through
My treasure and my hope
Is placed beyond the blue
