Dragging our feet to Heaven.
Today over dinner with my dad and JE, my dad wondered aloud, “We [believers] talk so much about Heaven and Paradise, but why are we so slow about wanting to get there?”
It stopped me in my tracks.
Do I drag my feet Heavenward?
If I believe what the Scriptures say about Heaven, why am I so loath to get there? Why do I claw so at this world? What one last earthly morsel would I rather savor than feast on the bounty of Heaven — namely, Jesus Christ Himself?
My heart is still so bound up with this world. This world is more paradise to my affections than Heaven. I can’t remember the last time I longed for Heaven out of a surpassing love for my Savior. To see Him, to be with Him forever.
Jesus is better. Jesus is better. Do I believe it.
