Mansions In Heaven
In John 14:2-3 we read, "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
The Bible says that each believer will be rewarded according to what good deeds he performed here on earth. Here someone has speculated on what type of abode many Christians might find when they walk up to their heavenly mansion.
Editor's Note: Not too biblically sound, but still quite thought provoking!
The Super Saint Mansion:
This is the home of those rare folks who totally commit themselves to the task of advancing the Kingdom of God.
The Widow's Mite Mansion:
Jesus' example of the poor widow out-giving wealthy men proved that it may not be
so obvious who will be greatly blessed with riches in Heaven.
The God Fearing Mansion:
The Bible repeatedly declares to us that God will, someday, pointedly ask each of us to give an account of the good deeds
we've accomplished in our life on earth. This type of mansion is for people that wisely acted on God's warning.
The Average Christian Mansion:
In heaven, even the average believer will enjoy living quarters that will be elegant by earthly standards.
The Struggling Believer Mansion:
This home is for people who made it into heaven by the skin of their teeth.
It's far better to live as a pauper in heaven, than to face the alternative.
The Spiritually Immature Mansion:
Many Christians fail to fully mature in their faith.
Because these folks cling to juvenile ways, a play house would be a fitting home for them.
The Wood, Hay and Stubble Mansion:
This is the dwelling place for those individuals Who did everything in life for their own glory.
Many high-minded preachers would easily fit into this category.
The Pew Warmer Mansion:
One of the saddest groups of people in heaven will be those who never did anything beyond going to church every Sunday.
They had the knowledge of the truth, but they never did anything with it.
The Quitter Mansion:
This is a home that will never be lived in because the person slated for this lot was a believer in name only.
Angels began to build him a mansion, but they stopped work when it was clear
the client had no intention of fulfilling his commitment.
