Life on Earth
Earth is more than just the planet we live on: it's the perfect middle ground between Heaven and Hell. To those in Heaven, it must look like Hell. To those in Hell, it must look like Heaven.
From now until Heaven
Heaven will be wonderful, but what do we do until we get there? This section will focus on how to live on Earth as Christians. While we should be Heavenly-minded, we must also tend to our responsibilities here. We should not love the world(1 John 2:15) as you cannot be a productive servant of God while loving the world.
Earth contains sin that constantly dogs us(1 John 2:16). We must be on guard the troubles of the world(2 Pet. 3:17-18) as Satan deceives it(Rev. 12:9). No one can claim to be without sin(1 John 1:8,10). It is something we will always have to deal with until we enter Heaven.
Help is here
The Bible gives us help and wisdom to make it in the world. God will watch over us and advise us(Psa. 32:8) as the Holy Spirit is our counselor and teacher(Luke 12:11-12; John 14:26). God is light, and we must avoid walking in darkness(1 John 1:5-6). We should make the most of our time here on Earth(Eph. 5:16).
Why think about Heaven?
