In 1972, a soul-gospel family band called The Staple Singers released a number-one single titled "I'll Take You There." It was written by a record company vice-president named Al Bell after he attended a funeral for his little brother who was shot to death. The entire song is based on a few simple words: "I know a place, ain't nobody worried, ain't nobody crying, and ain't no smiling faces lying to the races, I'll take you there." In this song, lead singer Mavis Staples, sings about Heaven and encourages listeners to seek this place.

Today, people all around the world are still looking for this place called Heaven. Heaven is a place of glorious peace, tranquility, and joy. It is a place where nobody will have to cry or worry or feel pain or grief anymore. It is an eternal place that stands in deep contrast to the world in which we currently live. It is a place of unimaginable beauty, created by the hand of God, for all those who choose to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ.

The Staple Singers sung about it, and if they could, they would take us there. But there is only one person who can take us to Heaven for certain and His name is Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ told his disciples in John 14:2-3: "In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." All you have to do is believe on Jesus Christ as your Saviour and He will take you there. Let me show you how you can believe on Jesus Christ today.
