Are you? Are you grateful for His death on the cross? Do you love Jesus? Many are quick to answer, "of course I do!" But I have a challenging question that I have heard from a few sermons. Would you want Heaven without Jesus? In otherwords, would you be satisfied going to Heaven if all your friends and family were there, but Jesus wasn't? Are you sure you truly love Jesus? Jesus is everything- nothing else matters. If you had a tough time with this question, I challenge you to get deeper with Jesus. The shedding of His blood, is the reason you even have the opportunity to go to Heaven, but if in your heart, you aren't "eagerly waiting for Him" (verse28) - then are you even going? I don't have the answer to that- but I am scared on behalf of the people who confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord, but their hearts aren't truly in love with Him.
So I ask, do you love Jesus? Are you eagerly waiting for Him?
