Thinking about Heaven

Hi, this is Joni Eareckson Tada and, oh, I’ve been so thinking about heaven these days, about life waiting for me on the other side. Now, I’m not being morbid, it’s just … I can’t wait to be with my Savior. You know, there was a time when I should have been excited about heaven, but all the seemingly silly clichés left me flat—you know, St. Peter at the pearly gates, angels with halos, rainbow thrones? But I'll tell you what really began to sound appealing—heaven began to feel like heaven when I began to love Jesus Christ. Jesus is why heaven is heavenly and in Revelation chapter 22, it says that in heaven, we will “see His face.” As a child of God, your deepest desire should be to see your Redeemer. So may you yearn for heaven today and all its rewards—a new body, no more pain, an eternal life free of troubles—but may you also be eager to see the face of your Savior.
