It’s crazy thinking about living forever! Isn’t it? Sometimes we reflect on existing forever. Spending forever with our Maker! And drinking in His love and worship Him forever! But you may think 10 years in Heaven will be a blast. 100 years will be fun, but what about 10,000 years in Heaven? What could we possibly do in Heaven for THAT many years?
Well, I never did extensive research on eternity, I can only speak from a personal relationship with God. But God never ceases to amaze me in this lifetime. There are always new facets of His nature and personality that surprise and astonish me. I feel like I have only scratched the surface.
So will we be bored or endlessly surprised in Heaven? I have read from people that have had Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) that beautiful colors that don’t exist on Earth exist in Heaven. Even the music is more vibrant! And the love they feel is incredible! 10 times better than on Earth!
Also I believe there will always be new adventures, fun, projects, jobs to do in Heaven. We will continue to work in Heaven but the joy will increase because of the Fall of Man, which brought toil, will be lifted! God is a creative God, He can always create more things for you to do in Heaven!
So we will be bored living forever and ever?
A.W. Tozer once said, “But there is more. God’s gifts in nature have their limitations. They are finite because they have been created, but the gift of eternal life in Christ Jesus is as limitless as God. The Christian man possesses God’s own life and shares His infinitude with Him. In God there is life enough for all and time enough to enjoy it.”
C.S. Lewis simplified it, “Once a man is united to God, how could he not live forever?”
But let’s enjoy our life to the fullest here on Earth! While we have much to look forward to, God calls us to be Earthly-minded. Prayer and worship can give us a taste of Heaven but let’s invite God to our Earthly space now!
