Q:

What will we do in heaven? I love to play sports, and I can't imagine being happy in heaven without them. I know some people will think this is silly, but do you think it's possible?


A:

The Bible doesn’t answer all our questions about heaven—but it does tell us that heaven will be a place of supreme happiness and joy. You can be sure that God will supply us with everything we’ll ever need to make us happy there.

Don’t forget, however, that one of the most important things the Bible tells us about heaven is that it is far greater and more wonderful than anything we can possibly imagine. It’s natural for us to think that our life in heaven will be like our life on this earth, only greater. But the Bible says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). In other words, the joy you get out of sports or anything else is insignificant compared with the joy God has in store for you in heaven.

Don’t make the mistake either of thinking heaven is boring. Nothing could be further from the truth! The Bible says God will have work for us to do—although we won’t grow bored or weary like we do in this life. It tells us that we will be “before the throne of God and serve him day and night” (Revelation 7:15).

The greatest truth about heaven, however, is that we will be with God and with Jesus forever. Are you certain you will go to Heaven when you die? Make sure of your salvation by trusting Christ and asking Him to come into your life today. It is the most important decision you will ever make.

    I get to live in the presence of God Allmighty and walk with Jesus in His presence. Your right that is indescribable and we can not fully comprehend all this. I am really looking forward to live with Jesus forever. Thank You Jesus for making this possible by your shed blood at Calvary. I love an eternal perspective and how bright my future is.
