We live in tentative times, but the words of God's story carry weight. The Bible says that the Word of God is alive, active, sharper than a two-edged sword, and profitable to teach truth, rebuke sin, correct errant ways, and train people up in righteousness. So while we face craziness on every level imaginable, we rest in the knowledge that God has provided a path to peace. All people can be rock-solid sure of His presence for all of eternity instead of trembling at the thought of facing a dreadful afterlife.
In heaven's reality, a
perfect environment exists, full of rich relationship, beauty, joy, peace, and
rest. Just imagine it! There will be no worry about recession, no
fear of terrorism, no distress over disease, no confusion, and no chaos. Just perfection -- pure, unadulterated perfection.
