Tuesday with Tiz

Heaven and Hell

My church has been in a Sunday through Wednesday revival this week.

Tuesday night our speaker spoke on Heaven. Oh, friends, the description was so vivid you could just bask in the beauty of Heaven. I could taste the heavenly food and smell the heavenly flowers. Heaven, a real place where there is no pain or suffering of any kind.

And then Wednesday night he spoke on Hell!!! Friends, the description was so vivid you could smell the smoke and hear the cries of the occupants. Hell, a real place where there is nothing but pain and suffering of all kinds.

As I have thought about those two sermons, I ask myself the question, "Did I receive Jesus Christ as my personal Savior so I could go to Heaven or so I could avoid Hell?" My answer is "No". If there was not a Heaven to go to or a Hell to stay out of, I would still want to be a Believer in Jesus Christ. He is my life!!!. Heaven will be my future glorious home, meanwhile, I will walk the Victorious Grace Walk with Him day by day!!!! Do I hear a praise?

"Father, I praise You for who You are. I thank you that as a Believer in Jesus Christ, I have the assurance of Heaven as my final destination, plus, I have You as my Life today. I pray that everyone reading this post today will have the same assurance. I also pray that they will experience YOU in their daily walk. In Jesus precious Name, I pray. Amen"

You made me reflect deeply on what my Christian walk is... is it just a means to an end? Thank you Tiz. My focus is skewed today and I know it. I feel off kilter. I needed to read your post and regroup. Doesn't that sound like corporate mumbo jumbo? I didn't mean to though. JESUS should be the focus always.

Love you SOOO much!
