Think of all the “earthly” things that will not exist in heaven. “God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish – sorrow and mourning – nor grief nor pain anymore; for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away” (Revelation 2:14, Amplified).
There will be no more tears, pain, death, or sorrow. All the things that burden us will be gone and erased from our memories. How comforting it is to know that our very tears will be wiped away. What a cause for rejoicing! The body actually groans inwardly as we await our redemption. “Even we ourselves groan within ourselves waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body” (Romans 8:23b).
Picture yourself in heaven. You will no longer see pain inflicted upon the hearts, faces and bodies of people. Every single emotional hurt, physical pain, and heartache from circumstances will be no more. As we consider these truths, we begin to realize what a beautiful, precious future we will spend in the endless ages of eternity with our Lord. Look forward to heaven with great expectation and hope. Let your heart be encouraged and reassure one another with these words (2).
