Everybody wants to go to heaven

By Mack | September 7, 2007

Have ever heard the song? “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die”. If you haven’t look it up on the net. It is an old song. There are scary and contemplative things in that thought. If I truly believe what God says and I am a child of God, and I believe going to be with Jesus, then that is what I should want, why are we scared to die? I don’t know. I think it’s our old nature, begging us to hold on to this life with all we have.

Another thought occurs to me that is even more true. Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to make Jesus Lord. Oh, we want Him to be our Saviour, and we cry out, “Save us, God”. But be our Lord? Does that mean I have to get off the throne of my life and let you sit there? What will you want me to do, if you are king of me?

We don’t want that.. Do you know what that would look like? We would no longer be able to fuss with the guy who cuts us off in traffic. We would no longer be acquiring wealth, we would be giving it all away. We would no longer be buying cars that cost $20,000.00 dollars when a $10,000 car would do , and we would give the other $10,000 to God.
Wow, that would be different. If God was our Lord, not just our Saviour.
