Let's Party!

Let's Party!

What's heaven going to be like? The writer of Hebrews gives us a glimpse in chapter 12. The author, in this chapter, touches on Godly discipline and then gives a warning against rejecting God's gift of grace. Then he reminds us that our faith is not in something fearful as Moses felt when on Mount Sinai.

He says, "Instead, you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God (the heavenly Jerusalem), to myriads of angels, a festive gathering, to the assembly of the firstborn whose names have been written in heaven, to a Judge, who is God of all, to the spirits of righteous people made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant."

Did you see that? It's a festive gathering or party in the heavenly Jerusalem. When I think of heaven, I don't think of a party. Yet the angels and the saints are having a party with the Father and Son, Jesus! That's one party I want to be at for eternity.

Our invitation to this party is God's call to us to receive salvation. We recognize we are sinners in need of redemption and forgiveness. Jesus in his death, burial, and resurrection made it possible for our redemption. We must receive or accept His invitation to believe and receive as Lord and Savior. That is the party invitation. See you there!

Onward and Upward!
