A House in Heaven

By Greg Laurie







“For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.”

—1 Corinthians 15:53



Someone once asked Billy Graham what the greatest surprise of his life had been.


He responded, “The brevity of it.”


As you get older, it seems as though life goes by more quickly. In fact, one study revealed the reason for that, noting that when you’re young, you like adventure. You like to try new things. But when you’re older, you get into routines. For instance, you like to go to the same restaurant, sit in the same spot, and order the same thing.


Yes, life goes by quickly, but the good news is that we’ll have new bodies in Heaven. And they’ll be amazing.


We all like stories about someone discovering they have superpowers, like Spider-Man, Superman, and Wonder Woman. They have superhuman strength. They can do all kinds of amazing things.


Well, we’re going to have superpowers, if you will, in the new body that God will give us. It will still be us. We’ll just be the radically upgraded version of ourselves. Our resurrection bodies will be like the resurrection body of Jesus Christ.


The Bible tells us in 1 John 3:2, “Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is” (NLT).


And Paul wrote, “For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands” (NLT).


Although our bodies wear out like a tent (and tents are not meant to last forever), God will resurrect them, and our souls will live forever.

GOD is sitting on HIS THRONE
TEARS are streaming down HIS Face
FOR Lack of knowledge MY PEOPLE shall die
HOW come you Believers are so shy?

The LORD has spoken only when your heart is broken
with pain as deep as an Ocean so that HE can fill it
