Why the Reality of the Resurrection Means You Don’t Need a “Bucket List”

Bucket, BeachThe term “bucket list” was popularized by the 2007 movie of that name. It’s an inventory of things people want to do before they “kick the bucket.” The idea is, since our time on earth is limited, if something is important for us to do, we have to do it now, because this is our only chance to do it.

Might Some Animals Talk on the New Earth?

DogMost people who’ve enjoyed the children’s stories of Beatrix Potter, C. S. Lewis, or others who wrote of talking animals have probably never seriously considered the possibility that some animals might actually have talked in Eden or that they might talk on the New Earth.

The Thrill of Seeing Christ Face-to-Face

SunOne day in Heaven, we will see Christ in His glory. The most exhilarating experiences on Earth, such as white-water rafting, skydiving, or extreme sports, will seem tame compared to the thrill of seeing Jesus. 

Will We Travel in Time in Heaven?

Pocket watchEven though I believe we’ll live in time in Heaven, God is certainly capable of bending time and opening doors in time’s fabric for us. Perhaps we’ll be able to travel back and stand alongside angels in the invisible realm, seeing events as they happened on Earth. Maybe we’ll learn the lessons of God’s providence through direct observation. 

Live for the Line, Not the Dot

Eye - PerspectiveI think of our lives in terms of a dot and a line, signifying two phases. Our present life on earth is the dot. It begins. It ends. It’s brief. However, from the dot, a line extends that goes on forever. That line is eternity, which Christians will spend in heaven.

You May Yet Discover Your Favorite Food on the New Earth

FoodThe person who’s eaten the widest variety of meals on Earth still hasn’t tasted countless others. How many special dishes will you discover on the New Earth? As yet, you may not have tasted your favorite meal—and if you have, it didn’t taste as good as it will there. 

Readers’ Responses to Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Heaven

Thank you for the Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Heaven book. I've always longed for eternity, but everything I was told made it seem so boring and pointless. This book was a GOLD MINE of information. I long for eternity with the Lord even more, of course, but now I know that it will be an exciting and fulfilling existence. —E.K.

If “no eye has seen” Heaven, how can we know about it?

God tells us about Heaven in His Word, not so we can shrug our shoulders and remain ignorant, but because He wants us to understand and anticipate what awaits us. We should accept that many things about Heaven are secret and that God has countless surprises in store for us. But the things God has revealed to us about Heaven belong to us and to our children. It’s critically important that we discuss and understand them.

Why You Can Live Free from the Burden of YOLO, “You Only Live Once”

Fallen leafThe expression YOLO, “you only live once," rightly recognizes you will die, but assumes that you will never live again after you die. The Good News is radically different.

 

Why Talking about Mortality with Your Loved Ones Isn’t Morbid, but a Gift

Father and sonIf Christian parents remind their Christian children that the worst that can happen in death is temporary separation, it’s reassuring. Their relationship cannot be terminated, only interrupted. What will eventually follow—whether in hours, days, years, or decades—is a great reunion, wonderful beyond imagination.
