One of the most despicable lies that plagues Christians at least as much and perhaps more than non-Christians is that “we just gotta make it through.”
YES, I’m excited about heaven with Jesus more than anything else, BUT, Jesus said that He came so that I could have joy abundantly. “Real life”, isn’t just beyond some struggle, over a hurdle, after an age, at a certain weight and not even, “when we get to heaven.”
Heaven is life with Jesus. Heaven is the indwelling power, peace and promise of Jesus Christ.
In Esse’s words…Joy is Your Birthright
