Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:42-43)
There was a man at my last church who genuinely struggled to know what heaven would look like. He was a great outdoorsman and he worried that if heaven were nothing but streets lined in gold with pearly gates surrounding it, full of angels singing the same hymn constantly – he would be put off and bored to tears. This wasn’t his idea of eternal bliss.
What is heaven like? William Barclay sums it up this way --
“For the Christian, heaven is where Jesus is. We do not need to speculate on what heaven will be like. It is enough to know that we will be for ever with Him.”
