How Far Is It to Heaven?

How Far Is It to Heaven? By Keith Cook

"Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 3:2

Repentance means to change your ways and change directions in the way that you are living. You may be going away from God now, but when you repent, you come towards God. The Bible says that we Must Repent because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

If the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, we must learn how far it is to Heaven. Recently, I asked some children this very question. I got many answers. One of my favorites was, "It's a million quazillion miles away!" I'm not even sure if that's a word, but I couldn't help but laugh. Another young girl stated, "It's not a million quazillion miles away, it's just right up there. You can see it just above the clouds." Spiritually speaking, I believe that Heaven is closer than you may think. I believe that Heaven is just three steps away.

1. Admit that you are a sinner.
2. Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross just for you.
3. Call upon the name of the Lord to be saved.

After taking these three steps, you will have Heaven in your heart, and Heaven as your final destination! Heaven is so close!

Personal Prayer Focus: Ask God to search your heart and reveal unconfessed sins so that you may live in peace and obedience and in expectation of Heaven.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's Neighborhood Outreach Program. In reality, very little is being done to reach people in many communities across the USA. On The Go is striving to train local Christians and help them develop programs that can systematically and permanently reach real needs in their neighborhoods.
