What does God say about His way?

Rom 5:5, “And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” God wants us to know that His way is love. We cannot seek love, it has to be freely given, and those of us who think we can demand it will be sorely disappointed.

What does God say about heaven?

Before my father-in-law died, he used to ponder the question of heaven. He hated the thought we might just sit around all day on clouds playing harps. God has provided us many clues about heaven, the home He has invited all of us to come to share with Him. One day we will be in heaven and finally see for ourselves what a great treasure it is, Matt 13:44, “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.” Let us reason with God, to find some of the clues He has left us: Rev 21:1, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the f
