The Heavenly Kingdom

We live in a time when the next adventure is right around the corner. We have opportunity to travel, to explore, to try new things etc. The world is filled with endless possibilities – many of us not wanting to miss one opportunity to explore. Sometimes I fear that we have our eyes and heart so deeply locked into the things of this world, that we forget we are just on a journey through this land. We are to long for the Kingdom of Heaven. The Bibtoo is filled with imagery and ideas of what Heaven is like. We are going to explore the land that Believers will live in one day. The hope is that our eyes will not be so glued to this earth – that we miss the most important and glorious destination. What can we learn and know about our future home together – the heavenly kingdom?
