A terrific view of heaven

“I love to tell the story of unseen things above, of Jesus and His glory, of Jesus and His love. I love to tell the story, because I know ‘tis true; it satisfies my longings as nothing else can do. I love to tell the story, ‘twill be my theme in glory, to tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love.” -“I Love to Tell the Story,” lyrics by Kate Hankey and William Fischer (1869)
“You don’t have to wonder why ‘we love to tell the story ….’ As the old hymn tells us, the best stories always point to Jesus. We’d love to hear why you love to tell the story of Jesus and His love.” -Gregg Harris, THRU the BIBLE president
Welcome, World Prayer Team. This week we’re setting aside some time to celebrate the great things God is doing in your lives as we study His Word together and pray for it to reach others around the world. So, let’s start with this one from Gene in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
“I really enjoyed the ride on the Bible Bus through 1st & 2nd Chronicles. I have read these Scriptures many times in the past, but this time it really stood out to me how Judah was greatly protected and blessed materially when the king feared the Lord and sought after Him. When the king forsook the Lord, that wall of protection quickly came down and then they were quickly plundered by the surrounding godless nations.
“Today, similarly, we see nothing but a world of godless nations and institutions fighting for power, position, and glory. The only place that we seem to see sweet unity is with those who have made Christ their Lord and Savior. It is so wonderful to hear the letters of how God is uniting people from practically every tribe, tongue, and nation around the world to pray and get out His Word to those near and far.
“Thanks so much for carrying the torch of Dr. McGee’s vision of taking the whole Word to the whole world. I plan to be on the Bible Bus till the Lord takes me home. It’s the only bus I know that gives us a good view of heaven.”
A good view of heaven. Isn’t that great? Let’s pray everyone who joins us on the Bible Bus takes in that scenic panorama today and praises God for what we’re learning.
We’d love to hear your story too. Write to us at [email protected] and join us tomorrow as we talk more about God’s miraculous work in our lives.
