Sermon: “En Route to Heaven”
The Fifth Sunday in Easter, May 14, 2017
Scripture Link: John 14:1-14
Jesus is like the “24 Hour Man” in the circus. This is the person who goes ahead 24 hours to the new location for a circus, being sure that everything is ready. Jesus has gone ahead to prepare a place for us. Yet Jesus is always with us, and so there is a tension between here and now, heaven and then.
Today is Mother’s Day. Most everyone’s mother in the congregation is in heaven. When we have a mother in heaven, a piece of heaven is in our heart. Being en route to heaven is like being in heaven now!
