In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. – Genesis 1:1
Last week I wrote a post about the beauty of Heaven. It’s a perfect place and one I long for… as I’m sure you do.
Well, ever since I wrote that post, God’s been poking me in the ribs with a truth that needs to be shared. He’s persistent and I’m finally getting it together enough to write what He’d have me tell you.
As beautiful as Heaven is… as stunning and awe-inspiring and completely amazing as Heaven is… as mind-blowingly perfect as Heaven is…
There is one thing that Heaven is missing. It’s a missing piece that God just couldn’t go without. He’s all about completion and fulfillment and making things just right.
Your Father was so intent on getting His hands on this missing piece that He was willing to sacrifice anything at all for it… even if that meant allowing His only son to take on the shame of the cross and die in horrible pain.
The one thing that Heaven is missing is… Me. It’s You, too. God feels all that splendor is flawed without the addition of our souls with which to share it.
Heaven won’t feel heavenly enough to our Savior until we join Him there. So while we sit here and long for Heaven, the Heavenly Host anxiously await our arrival. Then and only then will Heaven be complete.
Feeling loved yet?
Heavenly Father, I am speechless before the splendor of your extravagant love. I praise You and I thank You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
