This morning I've been thinking about Heaven. Last night my husband and I stayed up late watching The Gaither Homecoming, and it was highlighting Howard and Vestal Goodman. Almost every song they sang, if not every song, was about going to Heaven. It was so beautiful and inspiring! I got to thinking about how few of the new songs of our day, talk about Heaven. It reminded me of the words of the sermon I heard last Sunday, by Jason Morris. He said "...the fewer sermons that are preached about holiness, the fewer are preached about Heaven." A person is not very likely to want to think about the coming of the Lord, or where they will go when they die, if they are not living life sold out to God.
As I sat on the couch and listened to song after song about the day God calls us home, my spirit was so uplifted and encouraged just to keep drawing nearer to Him.
2 Timothy 4:8 "Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing."
