Our Eternal Hope
One of the most wonderful promises in all of the Bible is that people who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ will spend all of eternity with God in a place called heaven. Paul reminds us in Philippians 3:20, “our citizenship is in heaven.” This is our future home and our future hope, and he explained how that ought to make a difference in our lives today. As C S Lewis so eloquently states, “It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth “thrown in:” aim at earth and you will get neither.” (Mere Christianity).
