What Irony!

Thank you Matt Redman for this excellent and uplifting song about heaven! 
Have you ever asked yourself why we don’t usually hear so much about heaven today?
Why do we always find ourselves to be attracted to speakers who are telling us that they have all the solutions/answers to all our earthly struggles and problems which the Bible calls “light and momentary troubles”?  When they tell us that there is a carefree life, a life that is easy and free from pain and suffering, we believe them. The only thing we demand from them is for them to call the name of “Jesus” and quote the Bible here and there, then we give them all we got, our hearts and minds. 
But why?
I really don’t know.
Listen what the Bible says: “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” (2 Corinthians 2:17)
Eternal glory that far outweighs all our sufferings! 
Amazing, isn’t it?
“If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.” (1 Corinthians 15:19)
“We are of all people” – means from all people who don’t believe in Jesus, people who are heading to hell rejecting God and His word, from all these people, we are the most to be pitied if our hope in Christ is only for this life.
God forbids for us to be Christians who are the most to be pitied.
Wow! What irony! 
Christians and most to be “pitied.”
No! No! No! These two terms don’t go together! ///
