Other, The Word

The Glory Of Heaven – Jack Hughes

If one is a believer, he has much to look forward to; If one is an unbeliever, he is destined for torment unless he repents. A sermon by Jack Hughes, on Luke 16:19-31, (the parable of the rich man and  Lazarus) focusing on the aspect of heaven. I found this message so encouraging; a great reminder that this life is all the hell we believers will ever experience. Then an eternity of joy in the presence of our Saviour. What extent are willing to go to  in the service of your King? Are you willing to sacrifice every material and relational tie you’ve ever had to surrender your body to be burned for the furthering of the Gospel and the Kingdom? We should be.

“When I get to heaven, I’m gonna sit down, and I’m gonna look at Jesus, for a thousand years. And then I’m gonna say, ‘Where’s Paul?'” – D. L. Moody

“The bride eyes not her garment, but her dear bridegroom’s face. I will not gaze at glory, but on my King of grace; Not on the crown He giveth, but on His pierced hand. The Lamb is all the glory, in Immanuel’s land. ” – Annie Ross Cousin

The Glory of Heaven – Jack Hughes

1 John 3:2 “Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.”

Psalm 73:25-28 “Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.”

    That glorious picture is looking painfully familiar! The Glory of Heaven is a sermon that every believer must listen to, and then listen to again, and then again. That sermon greatly encouraged my heart, and helps me to have an etarnal perspective of life on earth. If you are struggling to know if you are in Christ, this sermon will help you evaluate your true heart condition before the Lord. Jack Hughes has a way of making Scriptural Principles stick through unforgettable analogies. Thank the Lord for men who fathfully exposite Scripture, and are devoted to serving Christ.

    Noah, I’m hoping to start my blog in just a few days, (hopefully this weekend :)). it would be wonderful if you would like to call me some time at your convenience so we can catch up on life. ;-). This past month and a half has seemed like a lifetime in some respects. It is incredible how God has faithfully provided all our needs as He sees fit. I would really like to hear how life is in Tennessee.
