My Thoughts about Heaven

“Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm‬ ‭139:23-24‬ ‭KJV‬‬

I have been thinking about what Heaven will be like. I believe Heaven is a place of perfection and complete painlessness. There is no sin. There is not even temptation to sin. Given that entry into heaven takes some fleetingly enjoyable activities off the table, it is more than worth it. No amount of worldly pleasure would ever be worth losing out on the chance to enjoy perfect happiness and oneness with the One who made us all.

I have been blessed by a podcast and a television series this year. The Bible in A year with Father Mike Schmitz and Ascension Press Podcast has helped me understand the Scriptures and makes God’s Word come alive for me. The Chosen television series is about Jesus and His followers. This wonderful production has opened my eyes to the humanness of Christ. It has made me realize if a Perfect Man, my Lord and Savior, can suffer and die for my sins, any suffering here on earth is well worth being able to eventually be with Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

In His Parables, Jesus painted a picture of Heaven. In this life, we are supposed to be preparing for that glorious day. A part of that preparation is reading God’s Word and living a life filled with forgiveness for others, loving our fellowmen, feeding the hungry, ministering to the lost, and practicing the commandments that were given to us. If we are busy doing God’s Will, we will not have time to be involved with the chaos around us. If we want to be good role models for everyone with whom we come in contact, we must follow God’s Will for our lives.
