Our Journey to God

Our Journey to God

Romans 8:18-21

James C. Denison

I got an email this week with these assertions:

You use 200 muscles to take one step.

The average woman is five inches shorter than the average man.

Your big toes have two bones each while the rest have three.

A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands.

The human brain cell can hold five times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica.

The average dream lasts two to three seconds.

At the moment of conception, you spend about half an hour as a single cell.

Your thumb is the length of your nose. You really want to test that, don’t you?

It’s all interesting, but not very relevant to our lives. For many of us, heaven and “the glory that will be revealed in us” seems the same way. We’re glad that we’ll go to heaven rather than the alternative, but how many of us want to go now? How many of you want Jesus to come back today? We have unfinished business–dreams to fulfill, goals to meet, children to raise, work to do. We want to go to heaven when we die, but not before then. And not any time soon.
