Do you ever think about what heaven will look like? John tells us that the heavenly city is surrounded by twelve gates and filled with precious stones. Its streets are paved with gold, with the crystal clear river of life flowing through its middle. On either side of the river is the tree of life, yielding its fruit every month, and bearing leaves which heal. No temple is to be found, for the Father and the Son are it’s temple. And the glory of God shines with such brilliance, there is no need for any additional light. My mind can barely comprehend the splendor that awaits me as a child of God, and my heart overflows with joy knowing I’ll be spending eternity with the Lord.
