May 13th, 2018 - Look at the Sky: Contemplating Heaven

May 14, 2018

We can imagine: not only will our intellect constantly penetrating the mysteries of God, the great heavenly feast in the book of Revelation will be brought to life- imagine perfect, heavenly food, in overflowing abundance. Will our favorite activities still exist on the new earth? I don’t see why we will not ski powder every day or have perfect trails with perfect dirt for mountain biking and stunning rivers with huge fish surrounded by pristine mountains.

Imagine the music in heaven: the greatest composers in history working with the greatest musicians, all in peak form with their minds unhindered by any ulterior motives and their work unhindered by time restraints and poverty. Imagine the art and the conversations, the greatest minds of all time to converse with. Most of all we will have true rest- peace. We will not be occupied with the cares of the world or the stress of day to day life.
