So What Does God’s Church Have to Do With Anything?


Jesus said, “And no man has ascended into heaven, but [except] he that descended from heaven…” (John 3:13a-b PDRC, brackets & highlighting added)


Jesus is God, so He came down from Heaven. Yet He’s a Man, too, and thus the only human being Who can go back up into Heaven since that’s where He came from in the first place.


But where does that leave the rest of us, how do we get into Heaven? We never came from there to begin with --- we’re just human beings, not God --- so how do we get to be in Heaven, too?


The solution is easy once you see it.


We become a part of God’s Body, His Church, so that after we die He takes us as a part of His Body along with Him into Heaven!
