What Will We Do in Heaven?

By Randy Alcorn February 17, 2010

HeavenRest from our labors on earth (Rev. 14:13).

We will experience relaxation and leisure, freedom from the frustrations of tedious and burdensome labor.

Eat and drink and celebrate at the table with Christ and the redeemed saints from earth, communicating and fellowshipping and storytelling and rejoicing with them (Matt. 8:11; Luke 22:29, 30; Rev. 19:9).

Communication, dialogue, corporate worship, and other relationship-building interactions all take place in heaven (Rev. 1-22). Saints and angels and God himself will interact together, building and deepening their relationships. “On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine—the best of meats and the finest of wines” (Isaiah 25:6). How good will that meal be?

Worship God (Rev. 5:13-14; 7:9-12).

Multitudes of God’s people, of every nation, tribe, people, and language, will gather to sing praise to God for his greatness, wisdom, power, grace, and mighty work of redemption.
