Jesus Is The Way

Editor's Note: This post was written by my 8-year-old daughter.

Hi! I'm GirlWhomGODloves. Did you know Jesus loves you?

"For God so loved the world, that he gave His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."
~ John 3:16

He loves everyone - even me and you. Are you glad? Isn't this good news? I think it is. Jesus is kind.

This is amazing. Do you think so? I do. Yea! Jesus loves everyone.

I can understand "no end" better than "no beginning." Because how can you have no end if you have no beginning? God has no beginning or end. And neither does His love.

"What can be said, what can be sung" to so faithful a King? Jesus is our King . Jesus is our Savior!

"Jesus said to Him, 'I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.'" Jesus is the way to eternal life! God sent His Son into the world to save the world. That's good news. Are you glad? That's not bad news! I used to think, "How do people get to heaven? Do they fly with wings? No. Do they let a cloud take them up? No, Jesus is the way to heaven. So, don't try to fly to heaven! You won't get there. Heaven isn't in the sky! It's out of the world. If you go to church, that doesn't mean you will go to heaven. You have to believe in Jesus.

"So, faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of christ." ~ Romans 10:17

Editor's Note: Does anyone want to speculate on the mystery of the week? Where is heaven?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  


  1. Hey Derek! That is so pressious! Makes a dads heart sing I am sure!

    I have no heaven speculation. I just know its there!

  2. Rob,

    Yes, I'm very proud of my daughter. She has learned a lot and continues to grow in both the knowledge and the practice of the truth.

    I find that the location of heaven is a perplexing subject. Initially, I think it's not a physical place, but a spiritual one. Hence, it is not in this physical universe, but somewhere outside of it. But then, I remember our Lord had a physical glorified body, and that we will have bodies like His after the resurrection. So, maybe heaven IS a physical place - but it has to be a spiritual place as well. Is it a spiritual and physical place outside of our universe, or inside of it? I'd guess outside. Yet, somehow our Lord ascended there from planet earth on a cloud. Ultimately, I thank God for the mystery here - because eye has not seen and ear has not heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what God has prepared for those who love Him!

    Best I can tell, heaven is a paradox, and I'm okay with that. But maybe someone will set me straight and help to define this a little more fully based on Scriptures I'm not thinking of right now.

    Grace & peace,
