you don't want heaven

Tell me, what is the logic of saying that you want to live in heaven with God, if you don't spend time with Him here? Do you really want to go to a place that is not your priority here?

We accept Jesus as our savior, we read the Creator's word, we obey, or at least we try, some of his commandments, having the small unconscious vision that we are doing it for heaven. I accepted Jesus because I want to go to heaven, says someone. Others, when evangelizing, say: accept Jesus so you don't go to hell. As if hell and heaven were the goals themselves.

You don't want heaven, for heaven, you want heaven to be with the Father, forever and without interruption.

But you don't want heaven when you just like Jesus. With him is marriage!

You don't want heaven when you don't even talk to Him during your day, your night, or your dawns.

No, no, no! You don't want heaven when you don't surrender to Him and Him.

Tell me, what is the logic of saying that you want to live in heaven with God, if you don't spend time with Him here? Do you really want to go to a place that is not your priority here?

Maybe you really want to live forever by the sea, in your work, in your home or even in your church ...

Maybe you're afraid ... I don't judge you, I don't want to go to hell either.

Maybe you just want to be sure when you leave this place for the better, go to a nice place.

But if it is just out of fear and insecurity, this is like buying insurance for your car, and well, not using the car. You are safe if anything happens, but you don’t even take the car out of the garage, don’t use it, don’t walk, it’s just there… And God? Is it just your insurance policy?

You don't want heaven for the Father. Because if it were for the Father, heaven would already be in you.

- The kingdom has arrived, said Jesus! But as the rich young man, what perhaps you need to put aside to build the relationship, the only relationship, the only treasure that will last for eternity?

You definitely don't want heaven when you don't read the word, don't speak to Him, don't sing to Him.

You do not want heaven, when you do not wake up in love with your beloved, who was bored on the cross for loving you.

You don't want heaven when you say you want it, but your whole life is focused on what you have here.

Come back to heaven today, not as a passage through eternity, but because there is the one for whom you are completely filled with love.
