Life Everlasting

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying; and there shall be no more pain …”

— Revelation 21:4

When did you last think about how incredible Heaven will be? Often we take Heaven for granted. In fact, our culture—even our cartoons—trivialize it, and we buy into the watered-down images. But Heaven will be a truly glorious place. What a great promise we have in knowing we’ll spend eternity there.

Can you imagine a place where every house is a mansion or a palace? Every step a triumph? Every covering of the head a coronation? Every year a jubilee? Every month an enchantment? Every week a transport of delight? Every hour a paradise? Every moment an ecstasy? That is what Heaven will be like. Who can imagine it, and who can understand what God has prepared?

In Heaven, there shall be no entropy, where everything breaks down. For indeed, the Curse will have been lifted, and sin will be gone forever. We’ll have perfect bodies that shall never age nor grow sick, never weary nor grow weak, and never need sleep. We will know no grief or loss. We’ll experience the full love of others. We’ll all gather in fellowship; no one will feel rejected or snubbed.

Above all, we’ll see our Savior face to face. We will know Him, love Him, and enjoy full fellowship with Him. Our relationship with Him will go beyond anything we could ever imagine here on earth.

As you walk through your day, especially when circumstances get you down, turn your thoughts toward Heaven. Let the hope of Heaven buoy you up this day.

“The reward for serving the Lord might not be much in
this life, but the retirement benefits are out of this world!”
