God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Revelation 21:3-4
What do you call a drop of water that contains mucin, lipids, lysozyme, lactoferrin, immunoglobulins, glucose, urea, sodium, and potassium? It’s a tear. All land mammals (except goats and rabbits) produce tears, but only humans do so as part of the emotional responses of life. For humans, tears are often sparkling drops of emotion from the depths of our hearts.
There’s nothing wrong with tears, for Jesus wept, and He was perfect in every way. Weeping is often therapeutic. Yet at the beginning of the eternal state on the new earth, God will somehow wipe His finger across our eyes, and remove our need for weeping. Most of our earthly tears come from sorrow, grief, loneliness, and heartache. But there will be no such experiences in heaven—“No more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).
Imagine a home with no negative experiences—ever!
That’s heaven, and that’s our home.
In that day, God himself will stoop down to each of his grieving children and—somehow, someway—he will dry up tears forever. Scott Hubbard
