Heaven: Setting Our Hearts on Things Above

Why Heaven Matters Now

1 Peter 1:3-9


Because Heaven is a place of rest… (1 Peter 1:3-4)

 …you can rest in the blessings of God now. (Hebrews 4:9-10)


Because Heaven is a place where the struggle will be over… (1 Peter 1:5-7)

 …you can find blessing in the struggle now. (James 1:2-4)


Because Heaven is a place where believers will be in the presence of Christ… (1 Peter 1:8-9)

…you can abide in Christ now. (Colossians 3:1-4)


Working for Christ

  • salvation
  • works
  • fruit
  • assurance


Abiding in Christ

  • salvation
  • abiding/assurance
  • fruit
  • works

How do you find rest, blessing in the struggle, and assurance?  Only in Christ.

Final Thought:  The realties of Heaven should make a difference in your life now.

Series Information

The biblical reality of Heaven is fascinating and often fantasized. Yet the desire for Heaven reflects one of the deepest longings of the human heart. We long for a home beyond this life. Heaven is the home God created for His children.  Heaven is a real place and so much more than a warm, fuzzy, concept of life after death. But Heaven is not the place everyone will spend eternity.  The biblically reality of Heaven cannot be grasped without a clear understanding of the biblical reality of Hell.  God calls us home in Christ.  We can step into faith and the reality of Heaven now and for the future, or we can step away from God and into the reality of Hell.
