There was a time not too long ago when my wife and I dreamed of spending our lives traveling the world and seeing all the wonderful and amazing things that can be found all over the world. We had already begun to fulfill our dream as we had seen interesting places in the United States, Mexico, Europe, China, and South Korea.
We loved learning about the various cultures around the world. We thought enjoying all the sights and sensations of the world would be the most fulfilling way to spend our lives. But all that began to change when one of our friends gave us a a copy of a book called “Heaven is So Real.”
The book recounts the experiences of a Korean American woman named Choo Nam Thomas who is given the privilege of seeing heaven with Jesus as her tour guide. The overriding theme of the book is that heaven is an incredibly beautiful and fun place to be and that it is better to be in heaven for eternity than any other place. But heaven is a place for people who have hearts set on higher spiritual things not on the pleasures and preoccupations of the material world.
As my wife and I read that book, we began to see clearly that we had our hearts focused on worldly pleasures and worldly experiences. If our hearts were so focused on the things of the world, how could we be sure that our hearts would be ready to enjoy the things of heaven at the end of our earthly lives? If our hearts were not focused on heaven during our lifetime on earth, how could we expect our hearts to rise up to heaven at the time of our death?
From then on, we have been focusing on heavenly things. Now we can really appreciate the meaning of the chorus line from that old hymn that says:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
We will only be on earth for a short time. We want to use this time on earth to focus our hearts, minds and lives on the spiritual things of heaven as we bless others. We want to focus on our eternal destination and eternal condition rather than focus on temporal things that are here today and gone tomorrow.
