What Home Are You Preparing For?


The following are some of the greatest quotes from Billy Graham:

1) "Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion - it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ."

2) "When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost."

3) "My home is in Heaven. I'm just traveling through this world."

4) "Some day you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don't you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God."

5) "When we all reach the end of our earthly journey, we will have just begun."

6) "The Bible says that as long as we are here on Earth, we are strangers in a foreign land. There are enemies to be conquered before we return home. This world is not our home; our citizenship is in heaven."

7) "Heaven doesn't make this life less important; it makes it more important."

8) "Death for the Christian is the doorway to heaven's glory. Because of Christ's resurrection we can joyously say with Paul, 'Where, O death, is your victory?'" (1 Corinthians 15:55)


What home are you preparing for?

Are we working out now for collecting treasure in the heavenly home, or we are just swelling our bank accounts to buy a temporary home of retirement to stay for a while and be no more?

Where we set our heart on, there our treasure will be (Matt 6:21). If we look for earthly comfort, we will miss God's heavenly purpose for eternal comfort (Luke 26:25).

For those who do not know Jesus Christ, choosing a dream home in heaven should be your priority before you physical death (John 14:2), but those of us who know Him already as our King, sharing the good news that all can own a dream home in heaven should be our priority of promotion for the Heavenly Kingdom we represent on earth. Remembering that working for the Kingdom of God provides not vacations, perks and promotions that ends over here on earth, but rather it truly showers dividends which are out of this world and that will never end (Matt 19:27-29), is very important to focus on the purpose God has given to us, and to reach our heavenly home safely transferring our treasures on earth to heaven by using it for the heavenly Kingdom we represent.

Remember, we are going to heaven for believing what Jesus Christ did for us and not what we have done or can do for Him. For He Himself has said, without Him we can do nothing eternally worthwhile (John 15:5). Rev. Billy Graham himself confessed many many times, "I'm counting totally and completely on the Lord Jesus Christ, and not on Billy Graham. I'm not going to Heaven because I've read the Bible, nor because I've preached to a lot of people. I'm going to Heaven because of what Christ did." The above became the life message of Billy Graham, which He chose to preach to the whole world for them to choose a eternal home of residence in heaven by believing the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We as the saints of God on earth, should do remember the living legacy of such great men of God in heaven, to be inspired enough to walk on the same glorious path to life and heaven like them.

Much Love and Blessings....
