Colossians 3:1 NLT Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand.

As we move closer and closer to the end, there are so called intellectuals who love to dismiss God, the sacrifice of Jesus, heaven, and angels. They call it a myth and call Christians delusional for believing in this myth. When it’s all over, we’ll see who’s delusional.

Until then, we the believers, are to set our sights on the realities of heaven. As born-again believers, we have a new life in Christ. A benefit of this new life is relationship with God forever. From the point we accept Christ, we have eternal life and we’re seated with Jesus in heavenly places (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:6). So, if we die now or Jesus returns, we’re seated with Christ in heavenly places.

This is something we can look forward to. We can know we’ll spend eternity with the Father and don’t have to experience pain, negativity, and disappointment. This also helps us cope when other believers go on before us. We may miss them, but we know they’re in a better place.

Heaven is real. If we choose to believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God Who died for our sins, we too have the privilege to make our home in Him.
