To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:4

In her book about heaven, Anne Graham Lotz talked about the time she bought a ticket for a tour of Buckingham Palace in London. She passed through one spectacular room after another, gazing at the hand-painted ceilings, magnificent paintings, gilded furniture, and crystal chandeliers. But nowhere did she see a child’s toy, an open magazine, a coffee cup sitting on a side table, or a table set for two. “Buckingham Palace is a magnificent showplace,” she said, “but it’s hard to think of it as a home.”[1]

The glittering scenes of heaven will far exceed anything in Buckingham Palace, yet it will be our home. It will feel like home, it will look like home, and it will be home. Our resurrected and glorified bodies will be perfectly equipped to enjoy all the features of the new heaven and new earth. Our friends and loved ones in Christ will meet us in New Jerusalem. Our tears will be gone; and our years will have no end.

How exciting to know the joy that awaits us in heaven. We should look forward to the eternal home Jesus is preparing for us.

Knowing where you are going takes the uncertainty out of getting there. Anne Graham Lotz
