Today's Scripture: "But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep." Jn 10:2

Some religions promote the idea you can ascend to heaven on a spiritual plane. Other ideologies promote that you can kill enough people who don't believe like you do and earn the gratitude of a angry God. But the vast majority of people believe they can just show up and walk right in. To others, depending on who you ask, there are different qualifications for citizenship in glory. While expectations soar concerning heaven, the fact is that we don't know everything there is to know about it.
The rich man in Luke 16:19-31 saw Paradise from afar off and wanted it. We have the testimony of John in Revelation (1:10-20) concerning heaven in the future. And Paul had an out of body experience in 2 Cor 12:1-6 and couldn't describe it. But aside from them, don't look for details concerning the place Jesus is preparing for us (John 14:1-4). There have been movies made, books have been written and some have given first-hand reports of experiences after being resuscitated. Who knows how much of that is factual. But whether it's another dimension or a planet in a distant galaxy, we can trust the fact that Jesus said it's good, it's eternal, He made it for us and He is there. Are you ready?
I trust You, Jesus, with every place you take me, here and hereafter.
