What you will do in heaven

“Then I saw ‘a new heaven and a new earth.’” Revelation 21:1 NIV

Perhaps the reason many of us are not as excited about heaven as we should be is because of what we have been told – that we will stand around playing harps, singing songs, and worshipping God forever. Think about it. When the singing and prayers in the average Sunday morning service last longer than fifteen minutes, many get bored. So when we hear we will be doing this nonstop, twenty-four hours a day, forever in heaven, you understand why we can’t comprehend it or celebrate it. But there is more than one way of worshipping God. Astronomers approximate the existence of hundreds of billions of galaxies, more than ten galaxies for each person alive today! So you won’t run out of things to do in heaven, and it certainly won’t be boring. It has taken thousands of years for billions of humans to explore a single tiny planet, and we have barely scratched the surface. Exploring the marvels of the new heavens and the new earth will keep us intrigued forever. And our love for God will grow infinitely bigger as a result. So we will never cease to worship Him. Jesus told the woman at the well that God is looking for those who “worship…in the Spirit and in truth” (John 4:23 NIV). If you worship out of ignorance, worship is empty. God doesn’t just want you to worship Him; He wants you to know who you are worshipping and why you are worshipping Him. Worship is twofold: “in the Spirit and in truth.” So learning the truth about God will keep you busy, excited, satisfied, and fulfilled for all eternity.
