"You will be beautiful. Clouds are floating. Kids are laughing and praying with Jesus. You have beautiful voices to sing for God's glory. Sunflowers are everywhere. Streets are made of gold! And it smells heavenly."
For more insight, Trey, 9, says: "Trees in heaven are full with rich fruit. And everywhere you go, you can feel and see the glory of God" (Revelation 21:23).
Yes, glory can be felt. It has weight. The Apostle Paul wrote, "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory" (II Corinthians 4:17). When suffering for righteousness' sake comes, God will add to your eternal weight of glory.
Think about this: None of us can receive glory for our entrance into heaven. We enter by grace through faith in the all-glorious Lord Jesus Christ. In his death, he paid our entrance price. But rewards are a different matter. God wants to share his glory by rewarding faithful believers in a place above and beyond Eden's paradise.
Memorize this truth: II Corinthians 4:17 previously quoted.
Ask this question: Have you ever considered that as a Christian you can add to heaven's glory by faithfully serving the Lord?
