What is Heaven?
Heaven is the eternal resting place of the Christian after death for one who places faith in God and accepts the gift of grace offered by Jesus for the forgiveness of sins. Through Jesus the Christian is seen as justified by God, perfected, forgiven for breaking the law of God.
Personally, I have no idea how to wrap my head around heaven. The idea of heaven seems ominous, unthinkable. After 40 years here on Earth, trying to be a good person in God and societies eyes, fighting the good fight, the idea f eternity is less than attractive.
The topic for this string of posts will be a study in what heaven is, when do we go, what do we do when we get there and why we should live right and have heaven as a goal.
