‘One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.” – Psalms 27:4

The football world cup 2018 season is going on. Each people who are spectators want their country to win the match and move on forward to final match.  In final also they don’t want draw but a complete victory to lift the Cup.  That is ambition of each team.

Similarly , who are we?
What is our goal?

Many years we are attending church nominally . We  are praying  for ou needs and that’s all, no vision of eternity and preparation of our life for eternity.

But when we consider what is our “Goal”
answer is ”nothing”.

When receive worldly blessings, we think we have reached our goal.  But that’s wrong.

Psalmist King Davids only desire was to dwell in the house of Lord all his days of life.

He being a king desired to dwell in the house of Lord rather than Palace with luxuries ! Because he truly loved God.

We who  are in new testament period,  we our selves that is our is dwelling place of God, that is the  temple of God.

“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own.”-  I Corinth 6:19.

We need to be holy, preserve our holiness because our body is the temple of God. To live an overcoming holy life we need to go to church regularly. But  most of times we go late by 5 or 10 minutes.  Even though we attend we always looking at watch when will the message get over and we go home.

In this present world if we don’t like the presence of God in church , then how can we spend thousands of thousands years with Jesus in heaven for eternity  ??? !!!

In heaven we will have only Jesus  and bands of angels praising Him continuously. If we don’t learn to love Jesus here on earth, then how will we love him and spend time through out eternity???

Our Jesus Christ have already won the match for us and showed his love for towards us (John3:16). We are are on the victory side.  we are in the last days of his coming ,Our one and only GOAL is to be like  Him (Jesus Christ ). We must change our  character to like Jesus only then we will be caught up in His coming.

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”-1 John 3:2

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
– John 3:12-13

We ourselves doubt whether  heaven exists or not when things happens contradictory to our expectations. In case of unsaved people , they question whether God really exists and heaven exists, Because no one have seen heaven. our Lord saviour  Jesus Christ came from heaven lived a perfect life and set an example for us and taught us the qualities of life to inherit heaven. To inherit heaven first thing we need is faith that God is true, Jesus is the only way to heaven.

When we board a bus we don’t see driver face, but still trust him,  that he will take us to our destination. Similarly we board train or flight we don’t know who drives it, but still we believe we will reach our destination.

But to  us to trust in our Lord Jesus Christ is very very tough or difficult. Some times our own experience or knowledge may tell us even God cannot help, But that is completely wrong.

-Abraham begat Isaac at 100yrs age,

-Noah built ark and was only family escaped flood on this whole earth.

-By faith walls of Jericho fell.
Hebrews 11th chapter we read the real heroes of faith. And last verse is not yet complete, it will complete with “Our name”. This shows heaven is not for coward people but only for courageous and heroes.

We can become hero not by our own ability or knowledge but by the guidance and grace of Jesus Christ.  Let God give us Grace only trust in Him always.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
