Every Christian longs to live eternally in heaven with God.  Heaven is a blessed place free from the pain and the sin found in this world.  However, only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life may enter.  To help his audience more intensely desire to go there, Phil Sanders has chosen “Heaven” as the topic of next week’s broadcast.  The nationally televised program can be seen locally every Sunday at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, ch. 7.
