We have made ourselves so comfortable here on earth that we don’t long to be in heaven with Jesus. Glorification seems nice but it can wait. In fact, if you asked the average Christian if they were ready for Jesus to come right now and take them to heaven they would probably have to take a minute to think about it, they would ponder and consider the worldly activities that they would miss out on, their affections are here on earth and not in heaven.

“For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain…my desire is to depart and be with Christ” Philippians 1:21-26
