“Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.”

We have a priceless inheritance only through the finished work of Jesus. If you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, I want to encourage you to go to the end of this post.

14. 2 Timothy 4:8

“And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.”

The crown of righteousness awaits all who eagerly anticipate the return of Christ. This verse encourages us to live with anticipation, knowing that an imperishable reward awaits us in Heaven.

Are You Heaven-bound?

I know that I am heaven-bound. Do you? 

I know that I am a child of God, that my sin is forgiven, and that I have eternal life. I know that I will share eternity with God in heaven. 

I do not deserve it. I could not earn it. It is a free gift from God, available to all because Jesus paid the full price on the cross.

Acts 4:12 tells us concerning Jesus that Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Jesus made a way for you to be made right with God by dying on the cross for our sins. We can only enter heaven through Him.
