Where God Lives: A Glimpse into God's House
Series: You Asked For It 2005
INTRO: I want you to take your Bibles now this morning and be finding your place at the last book of the Bible, the book of the Revelation, the 21st chapter. Today I want to talk to you about the place "Where God Lives." And that, of course, is the place called Heaven. And what I want to do today is give you just a little glimpse into God's house.

But, it's also too important to miss or skip over as well. I mean, if this is the place where we're going to live for ever and ever and ever, don't you think that we should know a little bit about it? So, let me go ahead and reassure you and put your mind at rest, we're going to make this a two part sermon today. Whatever we don't finish this morning, we'll finish up tonite. So, let me encourage you to enjoy this morning's se ...
