If Heaven is so wonderful why is nobody in a rush to get there?
Why does nobody want to die and why would most give anything to have their dead friends and family brought back to life on earth and away from life in Heaven? Why did Jesus resurrect Lasarus? It starts to look mean if Heaven is where his faithful are hoping to go anyway. I'm puzzled. If we all go to Heaven, what is Earth for ultimately? Why was it created at all?

Phil. 1:21-24 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body. The apostle Paul explains this conflict perfectly.
We are torn, because we know how wonderful heaven will be, and being with Christ is our ultimate desire. But at the same time we have many things Christ has called us to. I am a mom and I desire to see my children grow to be successful adults, and maybe make me a grandma. I am a wife with a husband who needs me. A daughter, a friend, a part of a church family, in short God still has stuff for me to do and I want to do His will. So we are torn between the two.
