The Real Thing

Posted by in Uncategorized

“There’s a song that they sing when they take to the highway
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
But singing works just fine for me”
(James Taylor – Sweet Baby James)

If visions of heaven are just something that helps you to sleep at night, then you haven’t been told about the real thing.  It inspires people to live by faith (Hebrews 11).  When people see it from a distance they realize the journey they are on, how it has already begun and how it will lead them through great danger… and then they set out.  If it doesn’t speak to your deep desires then it isn’t the real thing.
