Will heaven be boring? Will we tire of praising God throughout eternity?
That’s a bit like asking if we will tire of —
- beholding beautiful sunsets,
- tasting delicious food,
- discovering a great author,
- learning a new hobby,
- honing a new skill,
- hearing children laugh,
- watching puppies play,
- the miracle of a baby’s birth,
- hanging out with your best friend,
- listening to beautiful music,
- the scent of fir trees and spice in winter or the fragrance of jasmine and honeysuckle in the spring,
- a cool breeze on a hot day,
- your loved one’s embrace…
You get the idea. If we can thrill at the beauty of turning leaves, be memorized by coastline views, and delight in the beauty of an earth under the curse (Rom. 8:19-25), how much more will we stand in awe of God and what He has prepared for us in heaven?
Not only this, but for the first time in our lives, we will be truly whole.
- No misunderstandings or strained relationships (Isaiah 11:6)
- No sickness or death (Revelation 21:4)
- No crying (Revelation 21:4)
- No darkness, slander, deceit, fear, or sin (Revelation 21:8)
- No night (Revelation 21:23-25)
A friend shared a vision of her handicapped child one day being able to stand strong and unaided. The wheelchair that has played a constant role in their lives would be discarded, never needed again. Her vision illustrates what we will experience in heaven.
When we see Jesus, we will be like Him—pure and whole (1 John 3:2). If we never tire of the beauty of this earth, we can be sure we will never tire of discovering and admiring the infinite facets of our Creator and Savior.
Don’t let images of individuals in white robes floating on clouds, playing harps, taint your view of heaven. 2000 years ago, Jesus said He was going to prepare a place for us. If God created the beauty of the heavens and the earth in only six days, I can only imagine what He’s created for each of us.
Have you ever feared heaven might be boring? Don’t let images of individuals in white robes floating on clouds, playing harps, taint your view of #heaven. #hope Click To Tweet
‘What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived’—
the things God has prepared for those who love him—” (1 Cor. 2:9 NIV).
