9. "Is there really a heaven?"

This question makes me think of what it must be like for babies before they are born. They probably can't "imagine" another world beyond where they are inside their mother. Yet they have to "die" to that world to be born into a new even bigger world.

We are the same way, where we are now seems fine to us (at times anyway) and sometimes we don't want to die. But whether we want to or not, it will happen eventually, and if we are friends with Jesus, we'll get to go to a bigger and much more wonderful world. One where there is no more illness or suffering or death or crime or natural disasters or traffic or whining or tears!

What if He is just waiting for you to come to Him? And what if He's the most wonderful friend you'll ever have?
