Preparing for Heaven

A man said to his wife, “Honey, you’re just like an angel.” “Why thank you dear.” The surprised wife replied. “Yea,” said the husband, “You’re always up in the air harping on something.”

I hope you would never say that to your spouse, but I do hope you are thinking about how you will spend your time in Heaven, because that can give us a good idea for how we should be spending time on earth.

What will be our main activity in heaven? As best I can tell it is praising the Lord Jesus. The book of Revelation gives us a glimpse of Heaven when it speaks of falling down and giving glory, honor, and praise to the Lamb of God.

Going to Heaven is a big event. And any big event requires planning and preparation. If you’re going to Heaven to worship your creator for all of eternity, why not spend some time today getting into practice.

Praising God every chance we get is a great way to redeem the time.
