What Is Heaven And Hell Is Like?
(2 Corinthians 3:4-6) I read an interesting story about this man who was having a conversation with the Lord one day. The man said, “Lord, I would like to know what heaven (and) hell are like.” The story goes on to say, the Lord led the man to 2 different doors....

God opened one of the doors and the man looked in.  Right In the middle of the room was a large round table and In the middle of the large table was a large pot of turnip greens like grandma used to cook.  The pot of greens made the man’s mouth water.  But The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly.  They appeared to be starved, extremely hungry and in want.  Remember this.  All of them were holding forks with very long handles and each found it impossible to reach into the pot of greens and take a spoonful.  WHY?  Because the handle of the forks were LONGER THAN THEIR ARMS, they couldn’t get the forks back into their mouths.
The man got upset and somewhat disturbed at the sight of their misery and suffering.  The Lord said, “my friend, you have seen hell.”
They went to the next room and open the door.  It was exactly the same as the first.  There was the large round table with the large pot of turnip greens like grandma use to cook them.  These greens made the man’s mouth water too.  These people had same LONG-HANDLED FORKS, but the difference was, (here) the people were well nourished and plump, laughing, talking and having church just like we have church at Faith Temple.  The man looked at the Lord and said, “I don’t understand.”

The Lord said, It’s simple, it requires but one skill.  You see, (these have learned to feed each other), but the greedy, (in the other room) think only of themselves…
Are you feeding others or are you just feeding yourself all the time? 
Write this down:  Power and success come only from God.” I think every Christian struggles at one time or another with this truth. Spiritual growth is a constant struggle between what we do for God versus what we do in God. The struggle is sometimes hard to see because it is not a struggle between good and evil as much as it is a struggle between the good and the best!!
