"In my Father's house are many mansions if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you" (John 14:2)
If I miss the love and the mercy and the grace of God in this life, who is to be blamed? Certainly not the God who sits on the throne. He made full provision for my salvation. Certainly not the Lamb who stands before the throne. He died for my sins and rose again for my justification. Certainly not the radiant, flaming Holy Spirit who has accosted men and women all over the world, mediating to them the saving gospel of Christ.
Hear the words John heard on rocky Patmos as the Revelation of Jesus Christ concluded:
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according as his work shall be ... Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come ... And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
If I miss God's great salvation, has this life been worth the struggle? Personally, I think not!
If we go to heaven it is because we have a nature that belongs there.
