The Best Thing About Heaven

“…and the name of the city from that day shall be: THE LORD IS THERE.” –Ezekiel 48:35b

Do you ever wonder what heaven will be like? Ezekiel 1, Revelation 21-22, Isaiah 6 all give us a vivid picture of what heaven is like. But this last verse in Ezekiel shows us why heaven will be so great. The Lord is there.The dwelling place of the Lord is in heaven. It is as simple as that.

Often we long for heaven to see loved ones that have passed on, or to be rid of all the evil of this world. We desire to see the end of suffering and war. Our focus often becomes temporal things. But the fact that we can be with the Lord is the best part about heaven. Think about it, our sinfulness taken away, replaced with a glorified body allowing us to dwell with the Lord. Nothing hindering our relationship with Him. I long for that day!
