When we're trying to get somewhere we need to ask and answer a few questions... Where am I now? Where do I want to be? Why do I want to go there? How do I get there? As Christians we know that we live in a broken world ( where we are now ) and long to get to our eternal home in heaven (where we want to be). Because Heaven is where we will experience our miraculous future that God has promised those who put our faith in Him (why I want to go there). The way to get there is the remaining question. In the answer there is no road map, no turn-by-turn directions, just Jesus Himself.
