It’s hard work in heaven!
Revelation 7: 9-17
If, like me, you had always thought heaven was going to be a place of rest, think again! I’ve realised it’s a busy place.
Scripture is like a window through which we can see heaven and as I read Revelation I saw people I have loved working overtime to do the will of God. It’s encouraging, really encouraging, to know that they are still serving God, but not so encouraging if you thought heaven was a nice peaceful retirement home above the clouds. It’s in Revelation Chapter 7, verse 15, that I looked through the window and saw my loved ones working day and night, 24/7, in God’s home. They are never hungry or thirsty and every tear has been wiped from their eyes but they are working harder than they ever worked on earth. It’s good to know they are doing the will of God in heaven, but it has shattered all my illusions of resting in peace! Yes, peace we will have, but not the rest!
