We’re going to do a little experiment.
If you wear glasses, take them off.
If you don’t wear glasses, borrow someone else’s and put them on. (If no one has glasses, just squint really hard.)
What happened? It messed with your vision and everything got blurry, didn’t it?
That’s how our idea of heaven is right now. We sort of know what it might be like, but it’s kind of blurry. In 1 John 3:2, we hear that when Jesus comes back, our vision will be clear: “Dear friends, now we are God’s children. What we will be isn’t completely clear yet. We do know that when Christ appears we will be like him because we will see him as he is.”
Our human minds can’t really imagine heaven because we have never seen perfection. Sin and sadness and hurts blur our minds.
In heaven, however, our vision will be clear. We will be like Jesus. We will be pure, holy, and sinless. We will love God and love each other perfectly. We will never again hurt others or feel guilty for hurting others. We will see Jesus face-to-face and live with him forever.
Dear Father, we can’t wait to have clear vision. Right now this world is blurry and we stumble around trying to imagine what heaven is like. Help us trust that we will see clearly once we get to heaven. Thank you for letting us be like Jesus. Amen.
