“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes …”
— Revelation 21:4
Amid all the trouble we experience on an ongoing basis, with “Murphy’s Law” seeming to work overtime and deep sorrows occasionally gripping our lives, can you imagine the day when God will take us to Heaven and wipe every tear from our eyes? How we long for that day.
In Heaven, we’ll experience so many new things, things more wonderful than we could ever imagine. Yet we’ll no longer see many things we know quite well. We’ll have no need of sun or moon, for the glory and brightness of God and the Lamb will light everything. There will be no darkness, no night. And we’ll no longer have limited bodies. God will make us perfect—we won’t even need to sleep.
Churches and temples will no longer exist because we’ll always and forever be in God’s presence. We’ll no longer pray or meditate because we’ll talk to our Father face to face. And no false religion will exist to obfuscate the truth and deceive people.
No longer will we endure death or sorrow or sadness or pain. We’ll no longer experience separation—we’ll reunite with our loved ones who have gone before us, and we’ll never have to bid anyone a painful farewell again.
In Heaven, we’ll no longer sin. We won’t even think a sinful thought. We will finally be fully sanctified, perfect in our white robes, washed in the blood of the Lamb.
But the most glorious thing about Heaven is that Jesus is there. It is He who makes it perfect. Soon you will cast yourself in the Savior’s arms and thank Him for getting you home safely. All the pain of this world will fade away forever. How we long for that day.
