You may have heard of the little boy is about three or four who claim to have gone to heaven.

His father wrote the bestseller heaven is for real. A little boy's astounding story of his trip to heaven and back. According to little boys, a kind of heaven. The Holy Spirit is blue and that Jesus rides on the rainbow horse and thousands of thousands by the book and believe his account. Then there was a kind of a neurosurgeon who wrote the book the bestseller. In fact, proof of heaven.

Neurosurgeon's journey into the afterlife.

I find it astonishing that many people accept as fact the stories they appear to have little interest in what the Bible says, but don't believe what they think of these authentic experiences master what your view of heaven in the Bible the word heaven is using three ways. First, when you see the word heaven in the Bible it may just benefit to the outside atmosphere or secondly, it may be referring to the celestial heaven to this on the moon and the planets space and then there is the third heaven. That's where God dwells.

Jesus referred to it as my father's house in John 14, all on one occasion, was one of these rare individuals. Besides, he was caught up to the third heaven and you had things that cannot be told which man may not alter, and I realize as we come to this very fascinating subject of heaven. We have many questions, many unanswered questions. Questions that are not as clearly answered in the Bible is perhaps we would like. But the most important question is answered very clearly and very directly and very repeatedly in Scripture, and that is how can I get to heaven. I think all of us when we die. As I we must want to go to heaven. And the question is probably going to get there. John Wesley, the great Methodist preacher writes I want to know one thing, the way to heaven. How to line safe on that happy sure God himself has condescended to teach the way for this very end he came from heaven. He has written it down in a book or give me that book at any price give me that book.

I have it here is knowledge enough for me.

Let me be a man of one book here, then I am far from the busy ways of man. I sit down alone. Only God is here, in his presence. I opened and read his book, that I may find the way that you want to know about heaven.

If you want to know how to get to heaven I don't read the three-year-olds accountants of Jesus being on the rainbow horse order for the neurosurgeon says read this book because this is God's book is God's truth and this is the way of salvation and the Bible makes it very clear that only those whose trust is in the Lord Jesus as their Savior and Lord will be in heaven. You say what I seems very narrowminded.

John, what is important, surely, is that what all sincere women have different ideas. We may be on different roads, but as long as were sincere and as long as we live reasonably good lives. All of us eventually will reach the heaven that your view is around you to view contradicted over and over again in Scripture. Think of it this way.

There is only one person in human history who came from heaven to earth. That is our Lord Jesus Christ, God himself.

The word becomes flesh, and she comes I just called Emmanuelle God with us.

This one, the God man the Lord Jesus Christ's sin was he lives a perfect life. Unlike the life that you live and I live and he is sinless he enters the world uniquely conceived of the virgin. He is the God man conceived of the Holy Spirit lives. This perfect life and freely freely and voluntarily gives his life on the cross for our sins without them Sunday night classes.

We celebrated communion is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

No one else has done that. Furthermore, not only did he die on the cross for our sins. He was buried, and on the third day he was raised from the dead and is alive hundreds of people saw the risen Christ.

Hundreds of witnesses attest to the fact that he truly rose from the dead and is alive forevermore, and has the keys of death and Hades, and therefore, doesn't it make sense if he is the only one in human history was done that that when he says I am the way and the truth on the life. No one comes to the father. That is, no one enters heaven apart from me.

If you know anyone else who's come from heaven to earth, let the sinless life, died, and buried, and rose again and is ascended back to heaven if you don't want anyone else trust that person as well, but there is no other person. Christ is unique and therefore the apostles said that there is salvation in no one else, for that is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. And so the Lord Jesus is the only way to heaven. It's true we have many questions about heaven this morning were going to think of some of the questions that are answered in the passage Revelation 21 verses one through eight, we come now and I'm sure you'd relieved as I am that we come to the final two chapters of Revelation would be in it for the long time. I these are then the conclusion not only of the book of Revelation, but the last two chapters of the Bible were going to read about and you heaven and earth. Here is the incredible wonderful future that awaits all those whose trust is in Jesus Christ.

We send and read with me from Revelation chapter 21. Here is the word of God to us. As John writes under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

He says this then I saw a new heaven and new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down tonight of heaven from God, prepared this a bride adorned for her husband and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying bold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning or crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away and he was seated on the throne said hold on making all things new.

And he said right this time. For these words are trustworthy and true. And he said to me, it is done.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end to the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for marketers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second that think they meant. Please be seated.

I want to ask and to try to answer the question from this passage. What is heaven like I know in our minds are we trying conjure out what is heaven really like two years ago we lived in in the Michigan we went for vacation on the South Beach Miami and had about the site you send it so exotic and we arrange to stay in this place on millionaires role in South Beach that what you kind of place you think is on millionaires role or millionaire Street. It was called.

I anticipated you know this incredible incredible vacation on millionaires role. We drove down the hall away from Michigan arrived there myself and Chris of her who I think was a young teenager at the time and that it wasn't from the website it seemed quite a nice place. We went into the check-in in this resort place beautiful pillars marble look very nice but all her stuff in from the car to get up, opened a room, went into this place was a couple rooms and as we went 10. We immediately thought oh no this is not what we thought electric appliances hold out is rather dirty gizmo and we thought this is what we can before the week was to get worse. 230 that morning we were waking up by someone preaching at the door shouting obscenities. I haven't heard since I practice law and it was there someone was throwing rocks at the door, obviously mistaken looking for someone else.

Obviously, drunkenness was in the middle of the night with her. This is really great on millionaires role was to get worse. Next day we got what we must get out of it and someone that said you got to see parents on the rollerskates and Mamie don't ask me why we went there but there we were no sooner we had we started looking at these ridiculous pirates going around the rollerskates and I got a phone call crisis back in Michigan in the church and for about all that day I was on the phone. Good news Christopher saying we are on vacation is meant to be a tremendous place were all happy when we finally packed up and went back to Michigan you for the experiences in life like that happens, you where you've anticipated something, but after pressure and lapse of occasion.

Perhaps what you thought was going to be an experience of a lifetime. And this turned out to be a shoot.

This appointment let me tell you heaven is going to be the exact opposite. Using heaven is beautiful John writing under the inspiration of the spirit finds it so difficult to explain the new heaven and that you want to say for things about it. First of all is the first thing heaven and when I say heaven. I mean, the new heavens and the new earth, heaven is God's new creation. Verses one and two. John says, then I saw a new heaven and new for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband a new heaven and a new art. These words recall the opening verses of the Bible done that Genesis 1 verse one in the beginning God created the heavens and the God created a perfect universe, a perfect world, a perfect perfect planets, everything perfect made by God himself.

But we don't give any thought in the Bible when we realize that something tragic happened. Something tragic happened which affects every human being on the fact all of creation, because in Genesis chapter 3 we read about the falls with the fall of man the earth is under a curse. Paul says the whole creation has been groaning the creation is groaning and the older and older we get the shipment clearings. The more groaning. No more trips so they doctor the more difficulties the more difficult we find life everything is groaning.

It is difficult life on this is difficult so there's earthquakes was hurricanes was tidal waves as firemen. The drought was two years.

There's disappointment that that life is not easy. Member nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put Humpty together again and we have had a tremendous fall impact sauce impacts the whole universe. Try as we might all of the kings men at all of the kings horses can put this world back together again. We try man with his brilliant ingenuity were concerned about claimant were concerned about wars were concerned about driving were concerned about father date were concerned about the mass of our world, but we cannot take it back to what it once was. Because of that, deep within us, there is this desire for a better world.

We seem instinctively the very depths of her soul to understand that there's got to be something better than this. This world John is telling us that God's going to do exactly that in the future.

John receives a vision of what a new heaven and a new Old Testament prophets like Isaiah received a similar vision, Isaiah 65 verse 17 says God will create new heavens and the new art, how wonderful. Member the words of Jesus as he was about to leave his disciples in John chapter 14, he said I'm going on going to come back but I go to prepare a place new heaven and a new look what God is going to John says he'll invest when the first heaven and the first Sabbath had passed away.

How's that going to happen back in the Bible to second Peter second Peter chapter 3, second Peter three verse 10. The rights for the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens is this the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved at the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives and holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of the Lord, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn, but according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and then you are in which righteousness dwells. The old the old heavens are going to pass away going to burned up in the rose garden in his grace. These infinite creativity is going to create a new heaven and a new or not.

There is considerable debate and I'm loving the settlor this morning. This considerable debate as to whether John is saying that there is going to be a completely new heaven on earth. A totally new creation. Ask Nilo is at work or whether John is saying there's going to be a complete renovation of the present heaven and earth know the end result is that there is a new fresh heaven and earth. What is God, after the old is burned up is going to take the burn part and make a new heaven and you outside of that was going to be completely new we saw last week in chapter 20 verse 11.

The John said from his presence at fence guy fled away, which may indicate that the present creation will cease to exist when is burned with fire.

Verse one does say the sea will be no more. We know that much of our present world is composed of the sea, so the fact that there will be no more see a significant Bible depicts the sea often is the place of confusion as the place of chaos. Verse five John says from the words of the Lord will hold on making all things new. But on the other hand, Paul's language seems to indicate the renovation of the old creation in Romans six Scripture does speak of the restoration of all things. Wayne grew them in the systematic theology rights is difficult to think that God would entirely annihilate his original creation, thereby seeming to give the devil the last word and scrapping the creation that was originally very good, but we did read from second Peter three of the heavens and the art being stored up by five of being burned up melting as they burn. I pictured it this way.

I like this illustration present is like a piece of coal is going to be burned up and intense heat, as Peter describes it as described elsewhere in Scripture.

I know you have that intense heat. There comes a brilliant perfect sparkling diamond women view is not actually what is true that then you have an and then you are made by God will be very different from this present following world for more things have passed away. That is the old order has gone and the new has come. It will be a perfect environment. In contrast to the present, groaning creation and did you notice in verse two something wonderful. The holy city, the new Jerusalem the capital of the new art is going to come down out of heaven from God, heaven, as a word comes to earth and all of his beauty, a bride adorned for her husband should never read the Scripture you realize that in the future heaven and errors will merge and be out in eternal whole.

So when you're on the Sabbath and you are still being heaven that is heaven. As we normally think of. It includes the new heaven and the venue will think more of that in a couple of weeks. John MacArthur writes the new heavens and you are*seen blending together in a great kingdom that incorporates both realms the paradise of eternity is thus revealed as a magnificent kingdom for both heaven and unite in the glory that surpasses the limits of the human imagination and the boundaries of our family that mentions well said. I think that is the new Jerusalem, as well as in you are will be our home credible future we have here is our eternal home, adjoining of heaven and new heaven and new universe and and you. I second the first heaven is God's new creation. Secondly, heaven is the presence of God. Verse three. I have a loud voice from the throne saying, hold the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God ever gone to the doctor need and get the doctor you wanted. You got someone else. He went to Abby Butler, John Saiz, God himself will be with them as their God. What's heaven, it's God's new creation. Secondly, it is the presence of God, the Lord prayed our father who art in heaven. In the Old Testament God dwelt in the midst of his people in the tabernacle, attempts, then God dwelt limits of his people in this temple member built initially by Solomon and then at the incarnation of our Lord. The word becomes flesh John Saiz and John 114 and dwells among us tabernacles among us.

God is now with us within heaven. God will dwell forever with his people. What's heaven heaven is where God dwells. Heaven is where the throne of God is heaven is where the glory of God is displayed through his people, and God will dwell with us over the years of it. I've had the privilege of some wonderful people staying in her home. I've stayed in the home of some wonderful people is one of the great joys of life, isn't it, to be with people you love and and respectful and cunning and can learn from and interact with the fellowship with them to be under the same roof with them for a few days but could you imagine this that God himself will dwell with us and it's so that God is there and will outside looking in a little bit occasionally coming into the president got no God himself will be with them as their God might like Martin Lloyd Jones writes men and woman will live in a glorified body in a glorified world and God will be with their think of the incredible grace of God that God himself will dwell with us, not what Jesus taught his disciples in John 14.

He said I'm going to go to me troubled. I'm going to come again, that where I am father's house there you may be also in the new heaven and you as God doesn't dwell in the tabernacle God doesn't dwell in the temple.

Verse 22 says that God is the temple and heaven's glory is first and foremost because God is there. Heaven is the presence of God is to see God is to know God is to worship God. Nothing could be better.

Nothing could be more wonderful eternal union, then the terminal embraced by God himself. Paul writes, no, we see the motor dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known, Peter says in verse one regarding the Lord Jesus. He says whom having not seen. We love yes we see Christ we follow Christ. We love God but is there a visitors Leica Sica matter that's fogged over, and we in the grace of God we seek to live lives of of faith and of hope and of love, but is difficult sometimes, but then face to face, then God shall dwell with us. What's heaven like is God's new creation secondly is the presence of God.

Third, it's the removal of all evil, but you love this one verse four he will wipe away every tear from their eyes.

You think of all the tears this this week on this world to this planet and will joyfully every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning or crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away in these last two chapters. Revelation 21 and 22 John lists seven familiar things that will not be present in heaven and he expresses them in a negative way for them are mentioned here in verse four, no dad, no morning. No crying and no.

Think of it, no disease, no cancer, no divorce, no addictions, no crime of violence.

No abuse. The wars the funeral service apartments eternally free from sin and evil and death itself unimaginable in this, my dear brother and sister. This, in the grace of God is the future for every believer who knows Christ.

Paul says in first Corinthians 15 the dead shall be raised imperishable, and we shall all be changed, our bodies will never again experience disease or weakness or aging who said that says that getting old isn't for sissies. No aging in heaven. Perfect resurrected bodies. Yes, our present physical bodies will be resurrected. There will be a continuity from what we are now with what we shall be then, and we are change and will of all of eternity to explore the wonder of the new Jerusalem.

The new heavens and the new ours.

Sometimes people say to be John. What's on your bucket list. That is what you want to do or would you want to travel before you die.

People are big on this. I know I'm not one estimate was on my bucket list.

I think of it this way. I have all of eternity to fulfill all of my bucket list.

Someone says well I like to go.

Why don't why before I die.

Hawaii yes Hawaii is nice have been there. But if you think Hawaii is nice. Could you imagine the new heaven and new earth because Hawaii is perfect their sinful people in Hawaii. This prohibition I know why people get sick, you know why people die in Hawaii. People believe some of the worst heresies in this world in Hawaii so perfectly does not heaven. You mention in existence would all evil, all sin, all tears all crying and did the new heaven and the Newark is the removal of all evil. All other limitations because of disease because of infirmity that we have that we experience in our body in the universe.

All of that totally God Julie Erickson tether quadriplegic says I still can hardly believe it. I was shriveled bent fingers, petrified muscles, gnarled knees and no feeling from the shoulders down will one day have a new body, writes bright and clothed in righteousness, powerful and dazzling. Could you imagine Hope this gives someone spinal cord injured like me or someone who is cerebral palsy brain injured or who has had multiple sclerosis. Imagine Hope this gives someone who is manic-depressive. No other religion. No other philosophy promises new bodies parts and minds only in the gospel of Christ to hurting people find such incredible hope you believe that you believe that I asked you do believe it. I mean, I know it's memorial weekend but wake up, you say well I am am am not like Johnny Tyler may be doing. You have these limitations as well. Think of the heartache. Think of the pain just physical pain but emotional pain living in this fallen world, life as we know it on earth with his heartache and stakes its pains and sorrows's tragedies as wars its funerals as diseases and pains and disappointment all eternally gone.

No more tears. Imagine in existence with cheers, no crying. We saw in verse one we know more.

See see in Scripture is often the symbol of the restless wicked of conflict and separation, no mercy, but absent a new heavens on the new Arthur will be some fresh water lakes. I suspect I love the sea but in this universe there is no mercy. Chapter 22 verse three there is no more curse all of the effects of the fall. All of the effects of the curse. The sweats pain tragedy if it comes from this world and undercuts all of that eternally gone and notice chapter 22 verse five and night will be no more children generally are not afraid of of the day for the sometimes afraid at nights. Last weekend we had our three grandchildren staying overnight in Saturday night we finally got them based good and myself, get them into the bad's.

I read a couple of Bible stories. I pray with them. I say good night's I put off the lights is a walking out of the room for peace at last for a little bit as a marketing to hear this little voice granddad can keep the light on.

Yes Karen I will keep the light on just children don't like the dark.

We don't like the dark problems always seemed only 100 times worse in the middle of the night when you wake up at 3 o'clock to your imagination can go all over the place and the fear and anxiety seem to be much, much worse at night in the dark than in the day. But in heaven I love this is no more nights blackness, sorrow and fear and worry, anxiety, and sin are forever: no longer tempted by Satan that would not be credible no longer harassed by the devil. Going along for that heaven is the removal of all evil dance is forever banished and we will experience a life that is unimaginable, perfect love, joy and peace and fellowship than everlasting joy. We shall obtain sorrow and sighing then shall flee away. There shall be neither grief nor crying or pain to cast a shadow or the eternal day nor night, no darkness, no shadows. And then you haven't and the new ours.

No sunsets below, as was seen a couple of weeks. The lamp is the Lamb. Verse 23 was heaven like is God's new creation is the presence of God. It's removal of all evil and it is as I said at the beginning for believers only. Verse five and he was seated seated on the throne said holder making all things new. Also, he said, write this down for these words are trustworthy and true.

And he said to me it's not an am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end to the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payments.

Praise the one who conquers will have this heritage, I will be his God and he will be my son. But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second day is in heaven. Clearly it's for believers in Christ. Only in God himself. In verses five and six is guaranteeing this Sefton take of the new heaven and then you nonfiction is not the product of someone's imagination. Verse five, these words are trustworthy and true. Of course they are. The eternal promises rest of the character of a God who cannot lie, and to emphasize what John is saying we are told he's the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end Alpha, the first letter of the Greek alphabet, reminding us that God is the creator and the origin of all things only got the last letter of the Greek alphabet, reminding us that God not only is the source of all things is the goal of all things.

He's the end of all things is Alpha and the Omega is the eternal God knows the end from the beginning and what he has promised his words are trustworthy and true.

And this is the future of all who know Christ doing to go to heaven as the gracious invitation six. This is the grace of God is in the letters. John is talking about.

Then you have none, and you are the kind reserves reminding us that this wonderful future is all of God's grace, I will give from the spraying of the water of life that's eternal life without payments reminds us of minds as of Isaiah 55 verse one, everyone who thirsts, come to the wonders and he who has no money.

Combine Andy combine milk at combine wine and milk without money and without price credible future. You don't live by undergoing a pilgrimage to achieve something other than the end of the day.

This is your award know Jesus says of anyone thirsts, that's thirsty for go. If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink all those in heaven have responded to the call of Jesus to come come to him, and shall never thirst again come to him. If you are weary and burdened, and he will give you rest rest for your soul. Eternal rest against the invitation of God's son to come to drink of these eternal wonders you're trying to get a little bit of pleasure and the desired you're trying to re-escape some of the tears and the pain by by going to alcohol or or or drugs or promiscuity you you think you can deal with some of the pain and that kind of way that deep longing in your heart you know it's there and all of the success in this world can satisfy that deep deep void in your heart and so here it is. You can drink of the water of life, and John forwarders, a woman who was Thursday should should try to get satisfied in a series of relationships with about five or six men in her life and brother priests and brothers satisfaction. That's she goes through well for someone or Jesus says to listen to drink of that water will thirst again course UL, you can mask your pain by having a life of promiscuity life of self-indulgence, a life of making money, whatever that is your thirst again.

You wake up tomorrow morning and will be thirst again. But Jesus is not. If you drink of the water that I give you, you'll never thirst again. Could that be. Jesus says listen water that I give you the water of life is a fountain of water springing up for life eternal. Read the story in John chapter is if you come to Christ. The inexhaustible Christ will be satisfied for all of eternity in here is this glorious invitation come to Christ and drink of his waters turn from your sin and your selfishness and embrace Christ who loves you, who died for you rose again the one who conquers verse seven this believer who trusts the promises of God. Notice what the promises I will be his God and he will be my son. Not only will God save your not only will he give you eternal life he adopts you into this eternal family.

He adopts us. Paul says, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ in Romans eight I will be his cohorts.

He will be my God is my father, the son of God. Part of this eternal family all through the grace of Jesus Christ and notices it says the one who conquers will have this heritage, this inheritance people sometimes spend a lot of time and energy wondering whether going to get when the father their mother their grandfather their grandmother their uncle or someone they know dies and wonder what is going to be my inheritance and sometimes are bitterly disappointed. We who follow Christ will never ever be disappointed for this inheritance. You see we have an eternal inheritance and it is reserved in heaven. Peter says we have a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you. I have an inheritance in heaven and is reserved for me. My places purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ. And I can be true of you if you don't Christ that we have this inheritance. God is our father.

This inheritance is unimpaired by time, it will never fade away. It will never be to file which reserved in heaven for us. And then this magnificent description of the new heaven and the US. John in verse eight gives this warning doesn't but I just read what a serious warning. It is in verse eight about peoples whose portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. One commentator writes even on the threshold of unimaginable joy. John kind bid up pocketing glance over his shoulder into the abyss. In heaven there is no defilement of sin. Celestia claims Christ you can get into heaven to clear classes of people. Those who are trusting Christ for their sins forgiven who received eternal life, and those who reject Christ.

Those who trusts themselves, those who did not go trying to trusting Christ, whatever that excuse is there portion is the lake of fire.

Heaven is for believers only resolve that last week, didn't we. Verse 15 of chapter 20 of anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire, brother, sister, your following Christ, we rejoice this morning when future we have. We live with an eternal perspective.

This life is fleeting. Heaven is eternal. Richard Baxter writes there's nothing else that is worth setting our hearts on. I understand this life is difficult, but in the midst of trials and difficulties. Tears and suffering we lookup to Christ. The author and the perfecter of our faith to be like Abraham, who is looking forward to that city that has foundations was designer and builder is God.

In life we often say all good things come to an end, we try to hold onto some brilliant experience of an exciting vacation order a wonderful moment with a friend, but inevitably, even the best experiences of life come to an end, but not this one. Through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We write know you right now can receive eternal life life which will never end and when we've been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun will be no less days to sing his praise than when we first become what rejoicing that will be when we all get to have the pray and ask you if you've never done it to open your heart to Christ, to ask him to come and save you if you're not a follower of Christ, will you thank him for your future. Will you keep your eyes on Christ and may this future that we have met motivate us and inspired us to love Christ until before the father in regards pray for those who know you're drunk of this water of life were still unsaved as this it to your father.

Some of them are resisting the Holy Spirit break your heart hearts open their eyes to see their sin and to understand that delivered by themselves and their heaven open their eyes to see the beauty of her Savior, one who loved us and gave himself for us. Father, we praise you. I was so excited when we think of this future nothing or no one on this earth can take it from us. Help us to love you and to serve you with all of our hearts until that great day when the college will open. What a day of rejoicing that will be when we see Jesus, and with all of the redeemed. We will praise you in his name
