Some thoughts on heaven

An interesting, and true, comment from Russell Moore on Christianity Today (A Purpose-Driven Cosmos: Why Jesus Doesn’t Promise Us an ‘Afterlife’):

Your eternity is no more about looking back to this span of time than your life now is about reflecting on kindergarten. The moment you burst through the mud above your grave, you will begin an exciting new mission—one you couldn’t comprehend if someone told you. And those things that seem so important now—whether you’re attractive or wealthy or famous or cancer-free—will be utterly irrelevant.

We may have some idea from the Bible about heaven, but it’s pretty vague. It will be totally other, totally other than our world, than everything we know. We’re infants now, unable to conceive of the life to come.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
