‘Fifty devotions to spur your heart toward eternity.’
In 50 Days of Heaven: Reflections that Bring Eternity to Light, Randy Alcorn pulls select portions of his bestselling book Heaven (Tyndale House, October 2004) into short, power packed devotions.
Each devotion has a bible verse, a quotation, the text of the devotion, and ends with a prayer. This was my favorite prayer. I am praying it on a daily basis:
“Father, fill us with the wonder of being able to see you face-to-face.”
Why read about heaven when you are battling so much suffering in your day-to-day life? Because, to the Christian, Heaven is our destination. Knowing what the Bible says about what is promised to us, establishes a perspective and gives us hope when we face troubling times.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, when we focus on Heaven, we begin to see the people around us differently. We rejoice with those bound for heaven and we grieve for those who are not.
Pick up 50 Days of Heaven: Reflections that Bring Eternity to Light and read these short messages about where Christians are destined. Very enlightening and enjoyable, filled with wonder and hope. I recommend it highly.
