Folks I Want to Meet in Heaven
Job is one of them--one of the oldest guys in Bible and a real pioneer. I love his honesty and inquisitiveness about life. Starting a series on him this week has made me appreciate him all the more.
Jesus, of course!(this will be the best part of heaven)
Onesiphorus (he was such an encouragement to Paul & I love these kinds of low-key servants)
Chuck Spurgeon (AKA Charles Haddon Spurgeon). That dude could speak better than just about anyone about the things of God. I've visited his church building in London as well as his grave in East Norwood and will be stoked to actually meet him. (I also want to meet other preachers like G. Campbell Morgan, Joseph Parker, Alexander MacLaren & Richard Baxter)
I also can't wait for all those sweet surprises in heaven--those people that I knew in High School & college whom I never thought would become Christians but did anyway!
