“Living in Heaven”
 
Many times I wonder what that will be like.
We get glimpses of heaven in the scripture.
 
You are invited to read the following verses.
 
Mark 12:18-27
18 Then the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 19 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother. 20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married and died without leaving any children. 21 The second one married the widow, but he also died, leaving no child. It was the same with the third. 22 In fact, none of the seven left any children. Last, of all, the woman died too.
23 At the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?”
 
24 Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God? 25 When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. 26 Now about the dead rising — have you not read in the book of Moses, in the account of the bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? 27 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living. You are badly mistaken!”
 
I believe passages like this are tough for believers whose spouse has died. We picture them waiting to greet us with open arms. We can’t wait to go back to living in heaven the way we did on earth.
 
As one reads the Word, it would seem these things we long for on earth will not happen, not the way we think of marriage on this earth.
 
Whatever it will be like for the believers who are in heaven, it will be great. I believe being with the Godhead forever will far outweigh our best experiences on this earth.
 
So while I might still think about what life will be like for people who were married on this earth, my faith tells me not to question the Lord God.
 
Somehow, someway heaven will far outweigh our imaginations. I believe the Lord God knows what He is doing.
 
My life present and future are His, to do with me as He pleases. Amen
