Thinking About Heaven

Tend to Perceive as ...

·         Future

·         Far Away

·         Completely Disconnected

Tend to Misunderstand ...

Heaven and Earth

—  Earth – Our Space, Location, Dimension of Reality

—  Heaven – God’s Space, Location, Dimension of Reality

Re-thinking About Heaven

Heaven – Present Reality

A Glimpse                                                          ZLRev 4, 5

Heaven – Seeing the Unseen

A Story                                                       2 Kings 6:8-23

A Prayer                                                         Eph 1:15-23

So What?

God is Much Closer than We Usually Know

Heavenly Father

Not Far From Any One

We are Linked to Heaven

Citizen, Seated, Blessings, Inheritance, Stored Up

Your Connection There – It is Easy to Forget! – Worship

Your Role Here – Representative of Heaven – Work

God’s Goal

Bring Together                                                  Eph 1:9-10

On Earth as in Heaven

Take it Home! If someone asked you to describe heaven what would you say?Would you give a different answer now that you would have a while ago? How so?When do you sense God’s closeness the most?What difference does it make to be a ‘citizen of Heaven’?Take It Home – Take this home and use these questions to think about the ideas shared today. It is even better if you can use these questions in a conversation with someone else.
