"I Am Heaven"

The actor Jim Carrey recently appeared on the Oprah show and he was asked if he had a personal motto or creed. Oprah is watched by millions and what he said should motivate all of us to run out and witness to anyone we see.

When asked about a motto or creed, Jim Carrey said "I am Heaven."

Oprah: "Did you just make that up?"

Carrey: “No that’s how I feel. That’s what I have to come back to when I get lost out there.....Just remember your heaven.

Oprah: “I love that”

Carrey: "Heaven is not a place to get to or wait for or spend your life in a mine hoping it will be some day. Have it now.”

The audience broke out in a huge applause after this conversation. Obviously, Jim is tragically wrong about his assessment of Heaven. Heaven is a place to get to and you don't have to "hope" to get there. Through repentance and trusting in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation it will be a reality.

It is sad that so many watching the show could be influenced by these words and as Christians we should do everything we can to influence others with the truth of the Gospel.
