God Wants to Spend Eternity with You
By Rick Warren
“If the Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from death, lives in you, then he who raised Christ from death will also give life to your mortal bodies by the presence of his Spirit in you.” Romans 8:11 (GNT)
God never promised this life would be fair. We live on a broken planet. Heaven is where everything is done God’s way. Life on Earth just doesn’t work like that.
But what happens on this Earth isn’t all there is to life.
That’s one of the most important reasons Christians should be joyful—God has given us eternal life!
The Bible promises, “If the Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from death, lives in you, then he who raised Christ from death will also give life to your mortal bodies by the presence of his Spirit in you” (Romans 8:11 GNT).
Eternity will be amazing. What will heaven be like? You’ll be reunited with people you love. You’ll get rewards. You’ll get rest. You’ll get responsibilities you love.
And, as 1 Corinthians 15:42 says, you’ll get a new body because, even though your earthly body will be buried in the ground, it will be raised to live with God forever.
You were created because God wants a family, and he wants to spend eternity with his family. He wants to spend eternity with you and me! That truth can bring you great joy.
