Sunlight is essential for all life. John was charged with writing down a vision of the future. He described the future new Jerusalem (see question #22)—where the followers of Jesus will live in eternity—as a city that “does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb [Jesus] is its lamp. .

To “remain in the body” was only desirable for Paul because of the present needs the Philippian Christians had of his guidance and leadership. Even though heaven was Paul’s preference, it never motivated him to commit suicide just to get there. Suicide is a murder of oneself, and murder is against God’s moral law.

We tend to look at people by their nationality, color of skin, background, talents, or any number of other things. But God looks at the world as two groups: those who believe in Jesus as their only hope for heaven, and those who do not.
