DAILY READINGS: 1 Sam. 9:15-10:27; Isa. 50:1-51:8; 2 Cor. 11:1-33

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” John 14:5, NKJV

Thomas’ question is worth considering. The Bible speaks of heaven as being up. The Lord Jesus had come down from heaven and now He was going back to heaven. One day He will again descend from heaven and we will be caught up to be with Him forever. Yes, Heaven is up, but the real question is not where heaven is, but how to get there? Jesus answered this question in a wonderful way by saying, “I am the way” (John 14:6, NKJV) Through faith in Him, you can be there. —Rex Trogdon

When the trumpet of the Lord shall sound, and time shall be no
more, And the morning breaks eternal bright and fair; When the
saved of earth shall gather over on the other shore, And the roll
is called up yonder, I’ll be there. —James M. Black
