What would be the reason for living and dying if that was all there is, surely there is more to life than that. Life is not easy by any means and our purpose has more meaning when we believe in the one who created everything into existence including us. When we see through eyes of faith we look forward to the future here and now as well as after we have lived our life for nothing compares to heavens glory that awaits us. (Isaiah 60:18-22). Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.
Jesus came so that we may have life and have it more abundant, He has made it possible for us to go boldly before the throne of grace and now sits in heaven with the Father. (Hebrews 4:13-16). Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
How glorious heaven will be without violence, pain and tears, with only joy and peace forevermore will be what we enjoy! (Isaiah 35:8-10).
