You Have a Home in Heaven
By Rick Warren

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6 (NLT)

To God, your yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows are all connected. It’s as if he says to every Christian, “I’ve got this great life planned for you. Goodness and mercy have been with you all along—and will continue to follow you through your whole life. But that’s not all of it! I’ve got something wonderful planned at the end!”

David explains how God connects yesterday and today with tomorrow when he says, “I will live in the house of the Lord forever” (Psalm 23:6 NLT). David is reminding believers of how it all ends: We’re going to heaven! 

With God, it just keeps getting better and better. 

Paul says it like this: “For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands” (2 Corinthians 5:1 NLT).

How long is forever going to last? Forever! 

One day your body will die, but you won’t. Your body will end, but that’s not going to be the end of you. You’re going to live forever in one of two places—heaven or hell. You were made to last forever; the only question is where your forever will be. 

Why are Christians confident about the future? The Bible says, “We are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord . . . Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:6, 8 NLT). 

You’re going to die someday. And if you’ve accepted Christ, you’re going to heaven. You’ll be released from pain, sorrow, suffering, depression, and fear.

God will remove all your sorrows, “and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever” (Revelation 21:4 NLT). 

As a follower of Christ, you can trust this truth: The best is yet to come!
