Imagine Heaven

John Lennon’s song “Imagine” came to my mind. I don’t really know why a song I haven’t listened to for years suddenly comes to mind. But it did. The first line of that song is “Imagine there’s no heaven/It’s easy if you try.”

I hate to disagree with Lennon, but, as a Christian, I can’t “imagine there’s no heaven.” In fact, the opposite is true. I like to spend some time imagining heaven. Jesus told us that His Father is in heaven. The Son is seated at the Father’s right hand, and the Holy Spirit is present. God’s majesty and glory fill the eternal kingdom. And we will see the Lord in all His fullness.

The book of Revelation says that heaven is a “Holy City” (21:2). God and His people will live together and “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain” (21:4).

Imagine heaven and then live like a citizen of heaven on earth. Where there is sorrow in this world, be ministers of com- fort. Where there is death, offer the hope of the resurrection. Where there is pain administer prayers of healing. If a person has wronged you, forgive him as God has forgiven you in Christ Jesus. Let the Holy Spirit create a pure heart in you, so you will “see God” (Matthew 5:8).

Imagine heaven, and live it on earth.
