“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” – John 14:3
What is heaven like?
The most common image is a place of clouds where people wear white robes and halos, and do nothing except play harps with goofy smiles on their faces. That’s a view of heaven that sounds more like hell to me! What a bore!
What is heaven really like? Jesus spoke very little of it, but He did say this, “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places. I go to prepare a place for you.” What is heaven like? It’s like home, with a loving Father. It’s a place of security, a permanent place to live, and a place of refuge. There’s a longing within all of us to find home. Heaven is like home with a Father and loved ones as they’re supposed to be.
How can you be sure you’ll get to that home? Is there a map or rules to follow? No, it comes through a person, Jesus Christ Himself. As He talked about a heavenly home, He added that He is the only way for us to truly come home.
