The story of the 2012 Olympian Gabrielle Douglas.
You’re hope everyday, is Jesus Christ. You will live forever. Let that be your glorious joy and hope. You are an eternal being, choose to spend it with Christ.
A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,
In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
1 Peter 5:10
For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.
2 Corinthian 5:1
In a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.
1 Corinthians 15:52-53
The most awesome creatures in heaven are still creatures like us. But God is holy, unique, separate; not just greater but entirely “other”.
