Dear friends in Christ,
Last year, the population of the world exceeded 7 billion. I was surprised to find that the scientist estimated that total of 100 billion people have lived and died on earth. I don't know how many will go to heaven out of that 100 billion who ever lived on earth, but heaven must be a big place. How large could heaven be? I don't think that my mental/spiritual capacity to commune/fellowship with people will grow to 100 billion even if I go to heaven. Then, it tells me two important things about heaven, my relationship with God and what I have bound on earth when I'm entering the kingdom of heaven. How I shape the kingdom of heaven on earth will carry significant meaning in heaven. It is so because my new begnninig started when I was renewed by the blood of Jesus, not when I die and go to heaven. Now, my heaven consists of you and the people we serve. I want to thank you for being there for us and hope we can be an encouragement to you as you are to us. I will know you eternally.
