In Pursuit of Heaven
Living Life with Eternal Purpose
by Daniel Schaeffer
If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world. —C.S. Lewis (Mere Christianity)
Can you identify what that restless yearning in your heart is for and why it’s never fully satisfied? Heaven raises a lot of questions. It’s hard to imagine a place free of sin, pain, tears, and imperfection. The Bible doesn’t tell us much about what heaven is like, so we don’t usually like to think about it. It’s easy to get comfortable with what we know, even if it isn’t satisfying; however, God has placed a desire in our hearts that can’t earnestly be filled by anything on earth.
For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come. —Hebrews 13:14
In Pursuit of Heaven provides guided questions and insights into helping us better understand what heaven is like and why we should no longer live for this life alone.
