You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fulness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever (Psalm 16.11).
“Departures are all alike; it is the landfall that crowns the voyage.” C.S. Lewis, Letters to Malcolm
An essential part of one’s “Plan for the End” is the anticipation for heaven and eternal life with Christ. As one nears the end of life, thinking ahead is critically important. It’s just like taking a trip to a foreign country, which my wife and I have often done. In anticipation of that trip, we will spend lots of time discovering where we will be and making specific plans to see and experience as much as we can during the time of the trip we are about to take.
Robert Louis Stevenson has a quote I have always enjoyed; “There are no foreign lands; it is only the traveler that is foreign.”
While it is true that we have not yet traveled to heaven, it is also true that much has been written in the Scriptures to draw us towards it. Therefore, I’d like to suggest we invest time thinking through the following Scriptures in anticipation of heaven – both for ourselves and/or with loved ones who may be closer to heaven than we are. We can also celebrate in our spiritual imaginations what the saints of all ages and even our family members are already experiencing NOW in heaven.
