And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen. (John 21:25)
Can you imagine listening to all those “unwritten” stories about Jesus for eternity? Super cool!
But later I started thinking… will we really fellowship with each other in heaven or will we be so consumed with worshipping Jesus that we’re hardly even aware that anyone else is there? I mean, if you had a choice between worshipping at Jesus’ feet or fellowshipping with the apostle John, which one do you think YOU’D choose?
From there, my mind wandered to other questions like:
Will we even recognize each other in heaven? It is generally accepted that we will, but the Bible doesn’t give us that explicit promise.
How will God “wipe away every tear” from our eyes if there is “no more … sorrow, nor crying” (Rev. 21:4)? Have you ever wondered what that looks like?
After we’re in heaven for a few millennia, will our memories of our life on earth fade? Part of me hopes it does, because there are lots of things about life here I’d like to forget. But part of me hopes it doesn’t, because it will keep me forever thankful for what I was saved from.
So what about you? Do you let your mind wander to heaven? If so, what are some things you’ve wondered about?
