Many people have wondered at some point in their lifetime, “where do we go when we die?” This question really only has one answer, but before we get to that, we must first establish who God is and learn about what He has done for us. The Bible teaches that everything is God’s creation, from the Earth we live on to Heaven where he presides.
The Bible says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
Heaven is God’s home. There is only God’s goodness, pure love, and perfection within the realm of Heaven. However this is a problem for mankind because of something called sin.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
If you haven’t heard of “sin”, sin is any thought or action that is contrary to the goodness of God. Our sin ultimately separates us from God and prevents us from having a relationship with him.
But there is hope for us! Even despite our sinful nature, there is good news because the Bible tells us:
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
God’s son, Jesus, was sent to Earth to live a perfect life, yet was crucified to pay for the sins of all mankind. Jesus defeated death three days after he was buried and He rose from the grave. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are given an opportunity to have eternal life in Heaven and a relationship with God.
