"I go to prepare a place for you!"

The following is from Spurgeon's sermon,
"Jesus Affirmed to Be Alive" #2016. Acts 25:18-19

That pierced hand has taken hold of
eternal bliss on the behalf of those
for whom He shed His blood.

Jesus is now in Heaven making preparation
for our coming. What has to be done to make
Heaven ready I am sure I do not know, though
I have often tried to guess.

Jesus says, "I go to prepare a place for you!"

Heaven, when we get there, will prove to be
the perfect place for us. It has taken Jesus all
these years to make it ready for us. He that
with a word made earth fit for created man,
did not with a word make Heaven fit for His
children, but went to Heaven Himself to see
everything set in order for them.

I think I hear Him say, "This will not do for My
Beloved. There is something more needed. These
fruits are not quite mellow enough, these flowers
are not full bloom enough for My Beloved, whom
I desire to entertain to the utmost of their capacity."

Jesus now lives to keep Heaven for us
and make it in all respects ready for us.

"I go to prepare a place for you!"
