Life.Church Senior Pastor Craig Groeschel identified three misconceptions people have about Heaven and highlighted why it’s important to have a proper understanding of the afterlife.
In a sermon titled “The Glory of Heaven,” Groeschel said the first misconception people have about Heaven is that it will be “boring.” One reason so many people believe this, the pastor contended, is because the devil is a liar and wants humans to believe that God is a “killjoy” who robs us of everything fun.
“I hope you’ll understand — Heaven will be the opposite of boredom,” he said. “It is the absence of everything evil, and it is the presence of God. When you think about it, everything that you enjoy on earth is the result of a gift from God in Heaven.”
“When you go to Heaven, you will enjoy everything that you enjoy on earth, but there will be no sin, no more pain, no more sorrow, no more death,” he continued. “It is the absence of everything evil. It is a presence of everything good. It’s the opposite of boredom. It is the presence of God.”
Scripture tells us a little bit about what to expect in Heaven, the Hope in the Dark: Believing God is Good When Life is Not author said. First, believers will be reunited with lost loved ones who also followed Christ.
“You will be reunited with those that you love, and yet there will be no heartache, no rejection, no pain, only love,” he explained.
Scripture also says that Heaven will be a place of unimaginable beauty where we will see Jesus face to face.
“When you look Him in the face, you’ll realize you never truly lived until you see the glory of the son of God,” he explained. “You’ll see Jesus face to face in Heaven. You will have new and perfect bodies.”
Finally, in Heaven, Christians will have the “glory of working for Jesus in a way we enjoy and love.”
“In other words, whatever you’re passionate about, it appears you’ll get to do that maybe in some form of job serving Jesus,” the pastor said.
