“Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is” (1 John 3:2, NLT).
If you’re like most people, the concept of heaven, while desirable, leaves a lot of questions. What will we do there? Will we really play harps? Will we get bored? Will we have church all the time? As a child, heaven didn’t intrigue me very much as I didn’t have anything to grab with my imagination.
This verse gives us something to hold onto. We know Jesus could walk through walls, appear and disappear, and make a fire, cook and eat food. Sounds like a sci-fi movie, doesn’t it? Haven’t we all watched movies or read books with characters like this and wished we could do that? The good news is we will be able to do all those things and more. I’m sure boredom won’t even be a word anymore. Our imaginations can’t even begin to touch what heaven will really be like, and that’s good news.
