Christians know they’re going to heaven one day, but I wonder how many of us are prepared.

Hi, I'm Joni Eareckson Tada. Christians know they’re going to heaven one day, but I wonder how many of us are prepared. Isaiah chapter 25 says that when we arrive in heaven, “In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him … let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.’” Let me ask, in heaven, will you be able to look back and say, yes, I trusted in God on earth; I obeyed Him. Can you picture yourself saying that in heaven? If not, then perhaps it’s because you’re having trouble trusting and obeying God in this life. So, friend, if in heaven you want to be one who says, “I trusted in God; I rejoice and am glad in His salvation,” then get prepared. Get in the habit of trusting and obeying Him in this life. Heaven is a prepared place for prepared people—people who delight in holy living. So don’t wait, get ready today; because heaven is just around the corner.
