ARC Sunday Service Feb 23, 2020 preaching with Rev Aaron Wright…The Hope of Heaven. Some of the Scriptures from the preaching include: Heb 11:13-16, Heb 11:6, 1 Corin 2:9, 1 Corin 15:9, Eph 2:12, John 14:1-3, Rev 21:1-4, 1 Thess 4:13-18 and Luke 16:19-31 among other Scriptures.
As he preached, just some of what brother Wright said is that Heaven is the foundation of the Christian faith. It is our hope. It is what we are living for. It is the reason we gather to worship God and live a holy life, among other Biblical reasons. He also said we need to have a hope beyond the grave. And that the devil wants to kill, steal and destroy us but God came so we might have life (John 10:10).
Rev Wright also said we will all spend Eternity somewhere. God wants us to spend Eternity with him. God was in Christ reconciling the world (2 Corinthians 5:19 and Ephesians 2:12). And that the life live for Christ is not in vain. We as Saints with the hope of Heaven are not like the world that has no hope without Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). Precious in the eyes of the Lord are the Saints of God.
