Let us hasten toward our spiritual home

In the bible  God teaches his children to look forward to the spiritual world. the sad part is that because we lack understanding it is very difficult  to firmly believe in the Kingdom of heaven. That is why we must strengthen our faith through the word of God and fully realize our true home heaven.

Colossians 3:1- Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things. 

Philippians 3:20- But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Then, since we belong to heaven, what kind of blessings are in store for us?

2 Corinthians 4:16Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

John 14:2- In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

Revelation 21:1,4- Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

What a beautiful place it is! Our glory in heaven is inexpresible.  
In heaven God promised there will be no more death or suffering. 
Then, what can we do to enter the kingdom of heaven??
