What is Heaven?

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, October 4, 2015 · World Communion Sunday

Series: Facing Jesus: Living in the Truth/Neglected Doctrines and Popular Heresies

Text:Revelation 21:1-5


The theme of heaven is at the center of much misunderstanding of the gospel.  As Christians we live with a hope for the future.  But what is that hope?  For many people salvation means going to heaven when they die.  Heaven here is not the throne of God as in scripture (Ps. 11:4; Rev. 4-5)  In popular terms heaven is the place that believers go to when they die and enjoy a life of perfect happiness, free from all the struggles and conflicts they encountered on earth.  Heaven in this perspective is an escape from earth.  As familiar as this sounds, this is not the picture of eternal life that we find in scripture.  Still less is heaven a place where people sit on a cloud playing a harp.  This earth is our future hope not as it is presently but as it will be when Christ recreates it at his second coming.  The promise of this is secured in Jesus’ death and resurrection from the dead.

The Epistle to the Ephesians

Ephesians 6: “The Whole Armor of God”

October 7, 2015

Paul concludes this epistle with one of his most vivid statements of the Christian life and the struggles that are part of that life.  He begins by giving advice regarding living in an imperfect world in a way that glorifies Christ.  He then goes on to a stirring and powerful picture of the spiritual warfare which all Christians face.  He concludes with a strong admonition of prayer. Paul is preparing for a final defense before Nero in which he will state boldly the nature of the gospel.
