Q: Will heaven be boring?

A: No! Kenneth and Gloria both have taught that our time in heaven will be more involved than us simply enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Revelation 22:1-5 says:

“Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.

“No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him.  And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.”

Look again at the end of that—it says we will reign with Jesus forever and ever! The word reign literally means to rule like a king. In other words, we will have jobs to do for the Lord. While the Bible does not clearly describe what this might involve, we know Hebrews 11:6 says it is impossible to please God without faith. Putting our total faith and trust in God is something that will never become unnecessary—even in heaven.

The Bible says that in heaven we will exchange corruptible things for incorruptible and will receive new bodies (1 Corinthians 15; Philippians 3:21). Of course, we will always be in need of God. We will always be the creation and He will always be the Creator—He is our Father and we are His children! As long as we live, both on earth and in heaven, we will be able to learn from Him.

Stepping into eternity is not the end of things, but merely the beginning. Ephesians 2:7 says, “So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 6:1-3 speaks of the angels that continually circle the throne of God and never grow tired of declaring, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts.” Likewise, as children of God we will never grow tired of learning His ways and growing in Him!
