God’s Children Will Praise Him Forever
Case 12: God's Plan for the Future
What is God's ultimate plan for the rest of eternity?
God's ultimate plan is to have all His people together, glorifying and enjoying Him with their whole hearts for the rest of eternity. Ephesians 3:21 – To Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
This Truth Makes
God receives glory from many things, but there is one special group of people who will give Him glory forever. Believers will live in the presence of God eternally!
Since God is everywhere at the same time, we cannot say that heaven is the only place God lives. But heaven is the place the Trinity calls “home.” The most wonderful part of life in heaven will be that Jesus Himself is there – physically and visibly. Jesus is the best part about heaven!
We will see Christ. We will bow down and worship Him. We will praise Him and serve Him forever and ever. We will not need faith anymore, because we will be there to see for ourselves that everything we believed was true. We will not need to repent of anything anymore, because Jesus will glorify us and complete our sanctification so we are like Him. Heaven is a wonderful place filled with joy. We cannot possibly imagine right now how it will be. We will be so happy in serving and knowing God there that the simple joys of Earth will probably not be remembered much at all in comparison. If you do not think God can make you happier than you have ever been, then why would you want to go to heaven forever? God can make you happy now, and God will make you happy then. We will praise God forever for His rich gifts to us, and for what He has done to give us eternal life and true joy.
