Heaven is not waiting, far off in the future. The Father’s kindness gives His children tastes of the good things of heaven right now.
The moment we believed, Christ moved us from a kingdom of darkness and death to His kingdom of light and life. We can already live by the rights, privileges, and resources granted to the children of the King. We can experience some of heaven while we are here on earth. Eternity has come into the time-bound; heavenly has come into earthly.
We don’t experience it fully—yet; but we are living moment by moment into the future the Creator has planned for us. We can taste His goodness and the power of that perfect age to come. And we can live with great expectation!
