The Hope of Heaven

What happens after we die? It’s one of the most important questions we can ask – and one with eternal significance. As June Hunt has often said, eternity is too long to be wrong. 

Thankfully, God’s Word doesn’t leave us in the dark. The Bible provides clear answers about the afterlife, how to prepare for it, and tell others about it. Consider the story of Jesus and Lazarus …

Before Jesus walked out of His tomb, He stood at the tomb of a friend. Lazarus had been dead for four days and was already buried. When the Lord arrived at the tomb, He asked that the stone be rolled away. Then, after praying, “Jesus called in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’” (John 11:43).

And he did.

Death does not have the final word on our lives – Jesus does. He holds power over death, and He conquered death by His resurrection. Through Christ, God has removed every obstacle for people to avoid His judgment, escape hell, and experience the everlasting joy of being with the Lord in heaven.

With Christ, you can confront death with peace and hope. God calls us to believe and entrust our lives to Jesus, who said …

“I am the resurrection and the life.
The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;

and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.
Do you believe this?”

(John 11:25–26)
