heaven is...

Heaven is a realm where Jesus isn't pious/tame but unleashing "AWESOME!" to the Nth degree, all the time, without ceasing.

There is no sitting on clouds with harps for us... nor is it anything close to the absence of actual pleasure. We're in the midst of the whole version of the broken stuff we chase after.... including each other. True relational transparency is the norm, for the real you is revealed and emerges - not the fractured version you keep wanting to prove and justify to the world, but the Original You that is buried like a diamond under the dirt of this life.  The Lord Himself meets you with love and restoration and invites you into a feast! A party! It's an unending, unfractured journey of "THIS IS BEYOND WORDS!!!" that all are invited into through Jesus Christ but not many choose to enter.

Never forget: God isn't just "the man upstairs" or merely a presence in the universe, but He is completely thick in the thin parts of your life even now. (read that again) This VIP experience likewise isn't merely the after-party to this life but the Life He meant for you to be experience right now. He can give you glimpses of it if you trust Him today. So follow Christ...  believe, receive and call upon His Name... deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him.

Are you in?
"And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God." (Revelation 21:3)
