1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

I believe from a study that seeking heaven for the good it brings rather than seeking God and the things of God (all of the things of God) is self-centered and sinful.  IOW's so many people go around talking about heaven and seeking heaven on earth and forget that heaven is good because we will be face to face with the Living God.

I talked once with an atheist who was talking about how boring eternity would be...but as I pointed out, we are talking eternity with God which I don't find boring at all.  If all we focus on is what heaven gains us, we are missing the real beauty of what we will inherit. Instead of focusing on heaven, why not focus on the God of Heaven and earth.
