What Really Awaits You in Heaven?

May 24, 2024

If you ask Google for an image of what Heaven is like, it’ll show you plenty of white clouds, misty staircases, pearly gates, and cherubs with harps.

That’s a million miles from the truth. Ask the Bible what Heaven is like and it paints a very different picture! God’s Word reveals so much about what Heaven will be like. But the thing that people often find most surprising is this:

The Bible says Heaven is fun.

In the words of the Psalmist,

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalms 16:11

Heaven is a place of eternal pleasures and fullness of joy! And our experience of those pleasures and joys will be beyond anything we’ve ever known in this life:

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9

I take that to mean that in Heaven, our five senses will be expanded and exploded in ways we can’t even comprehend!

  • Think about the things you love to hear here on earth—like the roar of the waves, the cooing of a baby, or the beauty of a great work of classical music.
  • Think about the things you love to see here on earth—the majesty of a mountain landscape, the intricate detail of your favorite flower, or the smile of your closest friend.

Not to mention all the things you love to smell, taste, and touch.

When you enter glory, even the very best of all this world has to offer will be blown out of the water. Your senses, your emotions, and your experiences will explode!

Forget fluffy clouds and angel harpists. Heaven is going to be more fun than you can possibly even imagine!
