  • Why as Christians look ahead to their life in heaven they have a million reasons to be encouraged.
  • Why it’s important for pastors, ministry leaders, and Bible study leaders to preach, teach, and write on heaven and hell.
  • The heart of the worship of God’s people and how it is to be reflected in Jesus Christ.
