What We’ll Do in Heaven

November 03, 2018

“To depart and be with Christ…is better by far.” Php 1:23 NIV

Imagine boarding a plane for your dream vacation when suddenly the pilot announces, “Welcome aboard. After take-off we’ll serve you a wonderful meal and do all we can to make your flight enjoyable. However, I need to tell you—we have no destination. That’s right; we’re just going to keep flying until we run out of fuel and drop into the ocean.” No matter how wonderful the journey is, what’s the point if there’s no destination? God’s Word says, “If our hope in Christ is only for this life, we are more to be pitied than anyone in the world” (1Co 15:19 NLT). Thank God there’s more! It’s called heaven. And it’s “better by far” than anything we’ve experienced in this life. If you’re wondering what we’ll do when we get there, the Bible says we’ll serve the Lord (See Rev 22:3). You won’t be issued a halo, a long woolly robe, and a harp, and be assigned to sit on a cloud and strum for all eternity. No, we’ll each serve the Lord in different capacities. Think of it: no midlife crisis, no downsizing, and no burnout. On earth we fail, we get tired, we get frustrated, and our motives are mixed. But not there! Can you imagine serving the One you love most, doing the thing you enjoy most, and doing it in a body that’s forever energized? That’s heaven! And the ultimate bliss will be seeing Jesus face to face. “I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness” (Ps 17:15).
