The Best Is Yet to Come
By Rick Warren

“I will live in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23:6b NLT, second edition).

When Kind David says, “I will live in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23:6b NLT, second edition), he’s saying that God has prepared a place for him in Heaven.

That’s one of the most important connections we see in the Bible. It connects yesterday with today and then connects them both with tomorrow. 

God says, “I’ve got this great life planned for you, and goodness and mercy will follow you through it. But that’s not the end! I’ve got something else in store for you!” God builds it to a crescendo. 

So David ends his Psalm by saying, “We’re going to Heaven!” God saves the best until last. With him, it just keeps getting better and better.

You can live with the assurance of this promise: The best is yet to come.

“We know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands”(2 Corinthians 5:1 NIV).

Talk It Over

  • How does an eternal perspective change the way you live your life?
  • Who in your life needs to hear about God’s offer of an eternal home in Heaven? What will you do about it?
  • What kind of place do you think God has prepared for you?
