The atmosphere of Heaven is needed today, not just in the future

Live like Heaven now. (Don’t just hope to go there someday.) The atmosphere of Heaven is needed today, not just in the future. Too many Christians nowadays are spreading the attitude of Hell instead of the atmosphere of Heaven.

People need to see Christians living a heavenly lifestyle now, not just having a ambition to go to Heaven later. When Jesus gets ahold of you, you love Him so much, you strive to obey Him daily. When the living Jesus gets ahold of you, the affairs of the world fade in comparison.

The risen Jesus gives His followers the power, desire, and courage to live like Heaven. When we all live like Heaven (here on earth), what a day of rejoicing that will be. When Christians begin to live like Heaven, the kingdom (government) of God will become very noticeable .

To many Christians see Heaven as a distant destination, instead of a daily lifestyle. If you have a ticket to Heaven, cash it in now, so your friends can see Heaven in you! The closer you live to the risen Jesus, the closer you live to Heaven.

An old Christian song says: “”Heaven came down and glory filled my soul.” That happens to me almost every day! It’s wonderful to experience Heaven daily, and not just hope for it in the future.

If you don’t want to live like Heaven now, why do you want to go there when you die? A lifestyle that contradicts Heaven would ruin it, if it entered there. Too many people want to slip into Heaven without letting Heaven get into them.

Here is a warning about Heaven. It is full of passionate, sold-out worship of the risen Jesus.

Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is at hand,” not in the future when you die. He sent His disciples “to proclaim the kingdom (government) of God.” The government (kingdom) of God is here now. Will you let the living Jesus govern (rule) you from within? When two people are both governed from within by the risen Jesus, they will be in harmony.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
