“He will change our simple bodies and make them like His own glorious body.” Philippians 3:21

First and foremost, I would like to extend my deepest thanks to God for providing me with the grace needed to finish my first month with Project Grace. I never thought I’d be able to keep a habit of writing a mini-devotional series not just for myself, but most of all for you, dear readers. I also would like to thank you all for taking time to spare to read my blog posts here on this little digital journal. I hope you will continue to travel with me throughout 2016. 🙂
Tonight’s meditation is all about Heaven. It is a real place where there are no tears, no aging, no deformities, no sickness, and most of all, no sin. Sometimes we Christians are so excited about the thought of meeting our God soon, and yet when we come face to face with Death, we pray to the Lord not take us away yet.
We are only pilgrims, sojourners in this world. This is not our permanent home. The bodies that we have are only temporary. They sag, they get wrinkles and varicose veins, they get heart attacks and seizures, and many other human illnesses we can probably think of. We should always remember that the things we accumulate here on this Earth cannot be brought to where we are going after this life. Naked we came, naked we go. That is the last step. But Jesus Christ promises us that when we get to be with Him, He will change our corruptible bodies into incorruptible ones- mortality to immortality. How beautiful is that day going to be!
May we never lose sight of Heaven as we live our remaining days here on Earth. This is not our forever house.
