Hebrews 3:1

Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.


Yesterday we talked about our calling in life, which is doing things to the best of our ability as our response for what God has done for us. Now we are reminded of what happens after our brief time on earth, and that’s spending eternity with God. 

Where is eternity though? Where is heaven? People (usually children) will point upwards when asked where heaven is, or say that heaven is in space, or beyond space.  

The best answer to ‘where is heaven’ can be ‘where God is’. 

And thanks to the promises God made at our baptism, God has a spot there for us. There’s a space set-aside. He’s patiently waiting to us to join Him, but only after our earthly connections have run their course. Only after we’ve been given the chance to spread some of His good news around. Only after the opportunity to tell others about the saving love of Jesus. 

How’s your faith-sharing journey going?        

PRAYER: We thank you Father, for allowing us to join your team. For welcoming us into your family. For saving a spot for us as the best is yet to come. Help us live up to that higher calling as your children. Bless our time and everything we do here on your earth. Amen
