Hi, I’m Roy Fields with Run With Fire Ministries and this is God Today. I want to share something with you just briefly. I have something that I think will make you ask, “What does that mean?” I have found something that is better than Heaven!
Could you imagine anything being better than Heaven? The streets of gold, the Pearly Gates, the jewels… but I want to read something to you, from John 17:1-3. Listen to this real quickly.
“Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to Heaven, and said: ‘Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him’.”
And verse 3 is what I want you to pay attention to. “And Jesus said these words: ‘And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent’.”
Jesus said this is eternal life. You know, many of us, for so many years, are looking towards Heaven, looking towards Heaven. I want to get off or I want to get out of here, this place is terrible and I just want… Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” What does that mean?
My friends let me tell you what it means. Knowing Jesus is better than Heaven. Knowing God is better than Heaven. Walking with the Holy Spirit is better than Heaven. I can’t wait to get to Heaven but I tell you what, the prize is going to be Jesus, that’s why I believe Jesus is better than Heaven.
