The most consistent picture we have of heaven is a wedding feast where Jesus is the groom and his people are the bride.
"A praise party" is probably a great way to describe the banquet (Revelation 19:6-9).
"The first thing I would do is check on Jesus and see if he's OK," says Grace, 9.
I can assure you Jesus will be much better than OK, Grace.
And when you check on Jesus, you may find Nicholas, 5: "I'm going to go in Jesus' lap and give him hugs and kisses."
Grace also might find Anna, 9: "First I'd go right to God and thank him for all the blessings he gave me down on Earth. Then I would dance with him all day long. I would jog with my grandpa, play tetherball with the angels, plant sunflowers everywhere and skip along the golden path."
Anna, thank you for giving us a wondrous view of heaven. Keep dancing.
Think about this: Instead of having a pity party the next time things don't go your way, consider having a praise party for God's goodness and grace to you.
Memorize this truth: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love him" (I Corinthians 2:9).
Ask this question: What will you do before you get to heaven to advance God's agenda instead of your own?
