Hope of Heaven

Text: 1 Corinthians 15:19

This World is Not Our Home – Philippians 3:20; 2 Corinthians 5:1-4

Why We Should Look Forward to Heaven

  • No more pain & suffering (Revelation 21:4)
  • No more sin & its consequences (Revelation 21:8,27)
  • Place of rest (Revelation 14:13)
  • Eternal life (John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:1)
  • In the company of saints (Revelation 21:27; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
  • In the presence of God (Revelation 22:3-5)

The Frightening Alternative: Hell

  • Pain & suffering (Revelation 14:11)
  • Punishment for sin (Romans 6:23; Revelation 21:8)
  • No rest (Revelation 14:11)
  • In the company of the wicked (Revelation 21:8; 22:15)
  • Away from the presence of God (2 Thessalonians 1:8-9)
  • The only thing Heaven & Hell have in common are their duration – eternity (Matthew 25:46)
