You Did Something Last Week That You'll Never Do In Heaven
“O LORD, make me know my end and what is the measure of my days; let me know how fleeting I am!” (Psa 39:4)
The Bible is plain in its assurances that physical death will not be the end of our existence. “The dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it” (Eccl 12:7). Therefore, the “whole duty of man” is to “fear God and keep his commandments… For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil” (Eccl 12:14).
And yet, we do not have to fear that day. Because of God’s grace and mercy, there will be redeemed men and women of Christ who hear words, not of condemnation, but of eternal commendation. “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master” (Matt 25:21). What can we know about the eternal destiny of the saved? To answer that question, consider some things you routinely did last week that you’ll never do in heaven.
- You drove past a cemetery (Rev 21:4)
- You turned on a light (Rev 21:23-25)
- You faced temptation (Rev 20:9-10)
- You locked a door (Rev 21:8)
- You saw an old person (1 Cor 15:52-55)
- You visited a sick person (Rev 21:4)
- You took a pill (Rev 21:4)
- You shed a tear (Rev 21:4)
- You longed for God (Rev 21:3)
Because of these simple reasons and more, if you miss heaven, you will have missed everything! Fear God and keep his commandments this week.
