While we were gone last week, I had the opportunity to re-read a 'travel-style book' written by Dr. David Jeremiah titled "Discover Paradise: A Guidebook to Heaven, Your True Home".
The small book with lots of colored graphics and fun sub-headings has one section titled "Five Reasons Why Heaven Will Be Exciting":
1. God is Exciting.
2. We will be Exciting.
3. Our Friends will be Exciting.
4. Our Work will be Exciting.
5. Heaven will Fulfill Our Longings.
Over the next few weeks, I send out what each of these headings has to say under them; what Jeremiah shares with his readers:
#1 - God is Exciting!
"You will show me the path of life:
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
~ Psalm 16:11
"When we get to Heaven, we get near to God. At His right hand there are pleasures that go on forever. In His presence are fullness, completeness, and the absolute explosion of joy! Heaven is God's place, and God is not boring. People who talk about God might be boring, but God is the source of all good things----the taste of dessert, the adrenaline rush in our veins, the pleasure of sex, the expressive release of music and art, the laughter of children. God is the most exciting, adventuresome, creative person that we can imagine, multiplied a million times over. It goes off the radar screen. We can't even comprehend a little bit of the excitement that is resident in the Triune God with whom we will spend eternity forever and ever. That's where God is, and He's not boring."
