Life in Our Heavenly Home


Life in heaven will exceed your greatest hopes and imaginings.

Philippians 3:20-21

As believers, we are guaranteed a place in heaven, and we long for an idea of what that will be like. While all our questions will not be answered before we arrive, Scripture does give information about the Christian’s future life.

Who will be there? The most wonderful truth we know is that we will be in the presence of our Triune God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In addition to thousands upon thousands of angels (Rev. 5:11), there will be the Old Testament saints and all believers from this church age. Also, everyone who comes to faith during the great tribulation will have a heavenly home.

How will we be different physically? We’ll have glorified bodies, and Scripture offers clues about what this will mean. After the resurrection, Jesus had a visible material form, so we know we, too, will have a physical body to dwell in a physical place called heaven. Our form will be imperishable and will bear a heavenly image (1 Cor. 15:42, 49). While the Bible doesn't describe the glorification process, we know our transformed bodies will be perfectly suited for our new environment.

Will we recognize each other? Though different, our bodies will be identifiable. Mary, though confused at first, recognized the resurrected Jesus (John 20:14-16). Because we will be like Him, we will be recognized in our resurrected form, and we will recognize others.

Try to picture being in your glorified body with believers from every tribe, language, nation, and people group (Rev. 7:9). Life in heaven will exceed
your greatest hopes and imaginings.
