Walking into the mall, it was decorated with developments of all kind, it had the best stores, the best gaming centers, the best cinemas, the best restaurants and all of the things that seem to be a trial in proffering solutions to man’s unending search for heaven. Men of diverse backgrounds from diverse countries preferred this place in the state capital and I did too. KFC’s delicacies seemed to truly have some secret ingredients like they claimed, looking around as I licked my fingers I saw people doing different things… Some were just walking around adoring the beauties of this place, some were keeping memories by taking pictures with friends and some were checking out the latest arrivals on various stores. Me? I came to check out a movie, have a taste of KFC’s chicken and at least have some good time… But something struck my mind, it was written all over the faces of the people. Everyone had one common purpose for coming, to look for heaven! 


The world is searching for answers, the world keeps developing in a bid to see if the things in their imaginations can be brought into reality! The world is busy trying to get a taste of heaven! They tried it in the tower of Babel but it proved abortive! Today, we have so many places as beautiful as anything… In search of happiness we keep trooping to these places to see if we can have a lasting joy and peace of mind but we discover that as soon as we leave these places we are faced with the harsh realities of life, with the obvious truth that their is no rest in this world… The taste of heaven can only be found in one place, the everlasting joy and peace can be found in one place! Those beauties we are searching for can only be found in one place… There is no place as beautiful as this place… It is a place of rest! That place is Jesus!


“For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” – Hebrews 4:3 KJV


No wonder Jesus came saying “have you been looking for a way? I am THE ONLY WAY! Have you been looking for a truth about life? I am THE ONLY TRUTH! Have you been looking for a life? I am THE ONLY LIFE.” John 14:6


In Search of the beauties of life, we sojourn into greener pastures, we pay to have a taste of what man can do… But this place in God has the beauty this present age cannot offer.


This is not a promise of material things, it is not a guarantee of automatic success in our career! It is a guarantee of life that no man can give… The very life of God! If men could put up places with so much beauty that we struggle to have a taste of it, how wonderful is that place of God… We have a place in God and that place is Christ! There is no ticket fee to heaven, there is no expiration for the price that has been paid… Jesus paid the price. The question is “do you believe?”


We all have a place in Christ, there is no limited seats… 


“So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.” – Romans 12:5 KJV
