No matter how hard we try, we can never do enough to get into heaven. Our only hope is a changed heart, and Jesus is the one that can do that.
When we know Christ, he gives us by His Spirit a new love and concern for others. Our desires will be to help others instead of tearing them down. We need to open our heart and life to Jesus Christ more than we ever have before.
In Him we have hope for the future. This world is not all there is. Someday all the pain and heartaches we have will come to an end for those who know Christ.
“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” Revelation 21:4
Only good things will be in heaven. We will be safe in God’s presence forever. A better day is coming for the ones that have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. So there is hope for the future.
