The Holiness of God - Francis Chan
wow. honestly, when i think about that day i finally get to my real home, heaven, the things that go through my head are wild. I can’t even think clearly sometimes because i have no real idea about what it’s going to be like. Being in heaven and seeing God will be the most REAL experience i will ever go through. A few weeks ago i wrote about living for the day i get to see my Savior face to face. I realize that we should all be living for that moment because absolutely nothing else will matter. That moment we face the God of the universe, what else could even matter? I’m pretty sure it won’t be what kind of clothes you wore on earth, what kind of grades you earned, how much money you made, or even if you were the most prettiest or handsomest person in the world. It’s so much easier to say this then to actually live as if these things don’t matter. Still, i hope to be found on the narrow road. That narrow road, only few will find. Oh, all my beloved family, friends, strangers, AND EVERYONE ELSE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH come and join me and Jesus!!!!! Let’s travel it together with Jesus. As i continue to grow, seek, and fall more in love i want to surrender more! Jesus, help me to surrender. Help me to see things that i am holding on to. Do whatever it takes to bring me deeper with you (woah…not gonna lie, that is pretty scary to say, but i know that in the end, it’s going to be so worth it).
to hear you say well done, to see your eyes blazing with fire, to hear your voice that sounds like rushing waters, to see lightning and peels of thunder from your throne, to witness four creatures with six wings and eyes that cover their whole body singing night and day “Holy, Holy Holy, is the Lord God Almighty”, to see thousands and millions of people giving you praise, to be with you for eternity… i will live for that day.
i live for that day because you sent your son to die on the cross for me, you have given me a new life, you give me joy and freedom, you loved me first, you are true to your promises, you never ever have failed me and never will, you never leave me alone, you like me, you look at my heart, you call me your own and precious daughter, you delight in me, your grace and mercy covers all my sins- you gave me everything. So, all to You i owe.
