Columbus, Ponce de Leon, Magellan, and Coronado are names you may not think of every day, and names you may not have thought of since you were in high school. These were just some of the men who came to explore a new world.
Today, people don't think there are any new and exciting worlds to explore. They are wrong. It reminds me of the father of Orville and Wilbur Wright when he told his two sons, "Everything that can be invented already has been." Then they invented flight!
In our world, there remains one territory largely untapped. That is the territory of the heavenly realm. In this adventure, all who put their trust in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of their sin get a ticket to the largely unknown land of the eternal. It's even more than that! They also receive a personally guided tour of heaven and earth by the Lord Himself! Who wouldn't want to go on this eternal journey?
"I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen," - the words of Jesus, (Matthew 28:20).
