Are We Sure? Are we Certain? // A Devotion

The Kingdom of heaven is always a puzzling matter.

How do we know if we’ll really go there?

We can be certain, on one condition: we must accept the Lord, Jesus Christ into our hearts and minds as our savior and Lord.

Have you ever heard of the parable of the hidden treasure, or the parable of the pearl of great value? Well, the parables Jesus told say:

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found, covered up, and sold all he has to buy it.” (Matthew 13:44)

And, “The kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all he had and buys it.” (Matthew 13:45-46)

The kingdom of heaven should be like that for us, that we leave all behind us, worldly things, and strive be in heaven with Jesus.

Jesus wants us with him.

Accepting the lord and leaving everything behind us to be with him is the way we CAN be certain.
