I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Do you ever feel homesick for heaven? Whenever I get tired of this broken, old sinful world, or even my own rebellious heart, I find I'm often heartsick, or better yet, homesick for heaven where there will be no more sin, pain, or tears. But take warning: Charles Spurgeon once said, "Some of you, right now, could not be happy if you were allowed to enter heaven. And I'll tell you why: heaven is a spiritual land and you have neglected your spirit." Friend, that's something you don't want to do! So a word to the wise: Get your heart prepared for heaven... Get your soul ready... Make obedience a habit. This is what it means to not neglect your spirit. Because it is obedience that will get your heart really resonating with things above, as well as get your soul happy about going to a place that's holy. When that happens? Heavenly homesickness will be an everyday thing.
