What does it mean to be a child of God? Everyone is a child of God and created by God. We are all literally knitted together in the womb. Microscopic slides show this.
For you formed my inmost being. You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Psalms 139:13 (WEBA)
God wants all of his children to enter into heaven, however some choose not to. One of the best analogies I've heard in a long time is that imagine we are all on a large ship in the ocean and the ship starts to slowly sink, with enough time for rescue boats to save you and extend your life span. And enough life boats for everyone to be saved. Christ is that enough. He was and is the captain of the ship keeping the ship a float just long enough that everyone can make it off safely.
However some choose not to get off the boat and sink down to the deepest pits of darkness where no light shines. The choice is ours; the gift is provided free of charge. If you accept to get on the life boat and believe in Christ: life will be so good that we can't even imagine how great it will be the Word says. We've got some pretty creative imagination and some amazing things in life right here on earth. So just imagine how amazing Heaven will be.
We all have pain and suffering through this life on earth, some clearly more then others have huge struggles; and may feel like God, their family, and friends have given up on them, and all they have left is themselves. Sometimes we even feel like we've given up on ourselves. Our feelings or emotions can and do betray us. My friend I know the feeling. We must keep the faith that God is Love and He will pull us through every trial and tribulation and we must keep the good fight till God calls us to our eternal state where there will be no more tears or suffering.
I personally don't think this means that challenges or work will be taken away in the Kingdom of Heaven, I believe their will be order and plenty to enjoy in Heaven, beyond our imagination Good and Love.ATTITUDE
Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. A second likewise is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.
Matthew 22:37-40 (WEBA)
