How much do you think about heaven?
I pity the man who doesn”t think accurately about heaven. British theologian J. C. Ryle
1. Guard your mind
This world will compete for our minds skewing the picture of heaven in our minds.
2. Set our mind
By nature our minds set on worldly desires. What is popular, what can I get. Gratification, self-centerdness. My needs at any costs.
When we set our minds
If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this.
C. S. Lewis
Aim at heaven and you”ll get Earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you will miss both.
3. Expand your mind
1 Corinthians 2:9
Angels are not fat, naked babies.
If there”s ever a time to expand your imagination it is when you think about heaven.
God have us imagination to envision and look forward to one day being in heaven.
Think about heaven more and your life will change.
