What causes a person to board a plane, train, ship or auto and head ou t to a distant vacation destination? Escape, to get away from the busyness and challenges of life for a while and to experience perhaps a beautiful new place. For Christians, the final destination is Heaven. It is one of the motivating factors that keep us moving through life. But what will it be like? What is it that draws us to it and gives us hope of being there for eternity?
