ON CHRISTIANITY

By BILLY GRAHAM

This article was published March 25, 2014 at 2:34 a.m.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: To be honest, heaven sounds kind of boring to me. I’m sure it will be very interesting for a while, but eventually I think I’ll just be bored. Am I wrong? - R.P.

DEAR R.P.: Yes, you are wrong. Heaven will be far more exciting than anything we will ever experience on this earth! The one thing we will never be in heaven is bored!

Why is this? One reason is because we will be with God- and because He is infinite and eternal, we will never grow tired of exploring the riches of His glory. Nor will we ever be able to exhaust the wonders of His love - a love so great that He sent His Son to give His life for our salvation. We also will be with Christ, and we will have new bodies that will never grow weary or sick.

I’ve wondered also if perhaps God will give us the opportunity to explore the glories of the universe He created, from the smallest sub-atomic particle to the most distant galaxies. As the Bible says, “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” (Psalm 19:1).

But we won’t be sitting around doing nothing. Instead, God will have work for us to do, although without getting tired like we do here. In heaven, the Bible says, “his servants will serve him” (Revelation 22:3).

The real issue, however, is this: Do you know for certain that you will go to heaven when you die? You can be sure, by giving your life to Christ and trusting Him for your salvation. Don’t delay, but commit your life to Him today. Then you’ll know Jesus’ promise is true: “My Father’s house has many rooms. … I am going there to prepare a place for you” (John 14:2).
