Little Taste of Heaven

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you felt like you experienced a little taste of heaven?  I had a moment like that recently when I traveled to Denmark.  I went with the goal of finding more opportunities for missionaries to serve alongside our Danish church partners.  While that goal was met, I also experienced a memorable day of connecting with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ from many different nations.

 

It was a Sunday and I visited 3 unique churches in Copenhagen.  We worshipped God in Danish and English with people from over 30 countries.  I remember thinking, “Heaven is going to be so cool to be with people from every part of the world and to worship God together”!

I was warmly welcomed at each church, making the stranger (me) feel at home far away from my home.  As I think back about the diverse family of God that I encountered that day I was encouraged with their expression of love through their hospitality and kindness. The Holy Spirit also brought a verse to my mind that is in John 13:5, “by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”   What a difference in my life it was to have that lived out that day and I pray God continues to give me a deeper love for those he brings my way as well.
