Is it worth it?
See that top floor of this building? You can live there for around 60 million.
When we recently drove by this building, my husband informed me that the rumor was that someone purchased the whole top floor with plans of living there – for about 60 million dollars. Maybe more.
For r e a l??
I asked him to repeat it – 2 times. Like, I cannot fathom having that kind of money. I don’t think I would even be interested in a tour because I’m 1000 percent sure I would feel sooooooo out-of-place.
I can’t help but wonder what the people who can afford to live there did to earn their money. Were they born into a wealthy family? Did they go to college and land an opportunity of a lifetime? Did they move up the ladder by working day and night? Who knows. I’m sure there is a mix of backgrounds there. All I know is – I’m not one of them. There’s not a thing I can do to be able to spend my life in a place like that.
Kind of like heaven – except Jesus made a way for me so that I can spend eternity there. And I’m more than thankful that He did.
If you are thinking the same way about heaven as I was about the condo, that you know there’s no way you would have a chance to live there – please hear me out.
God wants you there. He made a way for you to spend eternity with Him. You can’t put a price tag on that. It’s up to you. I don’t have a picture to show you, but there are scriptures that describe it. One of my favorites….
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4
Isn’t it worth your time (rather than scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, blogs, or any other time consuming habits that does nothing but fill up time) to learn how you can spend eternity in a place where there’s no more sadness or pain?
You guys, heaven isn’t a place for perfect people. It’s not a club of people who dressed a certain way, attended a certain church or attended church every single Sunday. A relationship with Jesus is so much more than those things. It’s about your heart and love connection with our Savior, and your willingness to admit your mistakes and ask for forgiveness. It’s about a God who knows everything about you, but loves you anyway.
