    Stop Criticising Earth and Start Contemplating Heaven

    Stop Criticising Earth and Start Contemplating Heaven

    Any amount of time tasting the fruits of our fallen world will give most of a hunger for heaven. Without a doubt, the songs, choruses of worship, hymns, and anthems about heaven number in the hundreds. For centuries, God’s people have anticipated their final home— “a dwelling place” that is the destiny and destination of all who know and love the Lord Jesus Christ. To this day, it remains the hope of every believer grieving the death of a loved one. All of us who fill the ranks of the redeemed understand that, while we are to live as responsible citizens of this nation, “…we are citizens of heaven” (Philippians 3:20) where our Saviour has gone “…to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2) Since heaven is our ultimate destination, we need to spend less time complaining about our struggles and trials on earth, where we temporarily live, and more time learning as much as possible about heaven, where we will live forever.

    Stop Lying and Start Acknowledging

    Stop Lying and Start Acknowledging

    Of all the bad habits, we could address, few are more prevalent yet more acceptable than lying. As painful as it may be to hear it, people lie regularly. Unfortunately, many people find it hard to get through a week without lying. This is true for believers almost as much as unbelievers. Christians are just as likely as non-Christians to falsify their tax returns, commit plagiarism, bribe to obtain a building permit, shift blame onto someone else, illegally copy a computer program, and steal from the workplace. If we are not lying to others in the process, we are lying to ourselves. It is time for us to face it: lying is an ongoing habit that needs to be exposed, analysed, and ultimately, stopped. As we shall see, when Paul wrote to the believers in first-century Ephesus, he put it straight: “So stop telling lies” (Ephesians 4:25 NLT).
