Skip to comments.WE just might have to WORK in Heaven. Huh?

Not only will we be worshiping God in heaven, but we will be serving Him as well in whatever capacity He has in mind. Its very possible some of these things be hobbies you enjoy here on earth and where your talents and interest lie in. You very well might be doing that in heaven as a service to the Lord.
Funny how we dont think on these things as its hard to imagine. We are so caught up in the here and now, that thinking on future things like this is hard to picture. How often do we contemplate Heaven? Do you quickly picture clouds and sunny days? I think its going to be far more than us just taking in Heavens breathtaking beauty and worshiping God the entire time. He designed Heaven as a reward and life with Him. Its going to be amazing, so I started thinking about the moments in life that bring me the most peace and happiness.
For myself there is nothing better then being outdoors reading a book. Feeling the fresh breeze and warm sun on my face. I get caught up in the sounds of nature and often prefer their quiet sounds to anything men can create in a studio. God has had a lot of time to prepare our home and he pays such close attention to details. Just look at His creation. Incredible.
God leaves so much untold about Heaven because He wants to reward us when we are called home. Its very unlikely

Gathering star dust might seem fun for the first 2 or 3 million years.........then B O R I N G..
Volleyball is a fun hobby one has to work at to be proficient in.
Those that excerpt blogs won't have to work.
Their ad revenue will earn them a high place.
I don’t mind if it’s not “perfect” because it sure beats the alternative.
This is one of those “duh” moments.
The greatest joy is work that is UNWASTED and PERFECT.
I think that is what the Lord has in store for us.
For example, as a Christian prep school teacher, I love seeing the light bulbs suddenly switch on...
I can only imagine how sweet it would be for every kid to completely get every lesson every time.
Adam was working from his first day, prior to sin. We will likely work into eternity.
But considering that work today is a lot more enjoyable than the salt mines of the past, it’s reasonable to expect that work in eternity will only be that much more enjoyable than work is today.
I assume that includes at least maintenance.
My old pastor told us all that when I was in confirmation classes.
It will be work, but not toil.
Growing up like I did, I liked the sound of that.
Work in heaven will not be “work” as we know it on earth...for Heaven will be Heaven and NOT earth. It won’t be boring. If anyone is interested in truly discovering what Heaven will be like, I encourage you to buy Randy Alcorn’s book “Heaven” and/or go to his website:
Work is a blessing, folks.
If there are no planes in Heaven, I ain’t going.
I just hope I’m not going to have to be cleaning toilets.
Lets not flatter ourselves here. we will be serving in the capacity in which we served here while on earth. not WHATEVER he has in mind. it will be according to our faithfulness, our character, our obedience to his laws, our love toward others while we were alive.
Rev 22:12 "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done."
bible commentary: I bring it with me to give to every man: either life or death; heaven or hell; the crown or the curse. He will be prepared immediately to execute the sentence.
Only a fraction of those who think they’re going to Heaven will ever see it. Even those who are, eventually, will have to get real familiar with purgatory first.
Are you both so narrow visioned as to not think the God will have something for you to do that you will enjoy? Do you not think that God knows you well enough to find something new for you before you get bored?
I imagine a heaven were God calls all his children together to revel something new and wonderful about Him or His creation every single day.
There will be P-51’s, but possibly that is all there will be. If you can live with that, welcome to Heaven!
That’ll work. An Me-109 would work too.
Heaven is our reward.

it’s called ‘service’ . anyone not interested in serving on earth probably wont be bothered with serving hereafter
"But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him."1 Corinthians 2:9
That's all I need to know about it.
I'm sure some people get a great deal of comfort by thinking of the afterlife, but IMHO focusing too much on the afterlife easily turns into a focus on something other than actively following Christ. People who can ignore the realities of contraception because they have preconceptions about being sexually active are definitely going to be prone to accepting error or heresy if it fits with their preconception of what the afterlife will be like.
I’d like to believe that I will be doing play by play of the Archangels vs. the Seraphim in old Yankees Stadium.
I know there are only 7 archangels but heavenly scouting reports say Michael is so fast he can play the entire outfield.
This and many other arguments of Lucrietius in his DE RERUM NATURA appear to me ironclad. To me it is a source of inspiration and amazement that they could have been enunciated so clearly at such an early date, because we often assume that such ideas are the product of modern scientific cynicism. Lucretius stands, ironically, as a sort of patron saint of materialism.

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
As a musician I believe I will be creating glorious music in a glorious heaven in a glorious room in the glorious mansion.
But my mind is small.
I have a vision of what my experience will be:
SAINT PETER: We have a dataset on all the joys of Heaven. We were wondering if you could program it to produce regular reports.
ME: Sure. How big is the dataset?
SAINT PETER: Well, it’s infinite, actually.
ME: Hmmm. That may cause some very long processing times.
SAINT PETER: Not really. Our servers are very quick. But you might want to read up on the ALEPH function and PROC CANTOR.
ME: Always good to learn something new. Once you set up my account, I will get started.
SAINT PETER: Your account is all ready to go. And if you have any problems, the database administrator gets no greater joy than helping you. Even if you have to ask him a thousand questions a day.
ME: This is Heaven!
Well, when Darryl Strawberry gets there, he can take an outfield slot. He could do it for both sides.
Strawberry fields forever.
As a maintenance guy I could see St Peter telling me: “There seems to be a problem with the gates, you think you could take a look at them?”
Just be careful of the competition.
The Union guy, the small business guy and the illegal immigrant all bid on the repair work and gave St. Peter a quote.
The illegal said $500. The small business man said $700. The Union guy quoted St. Pete $4500. St. Pete asked him why so much more? “Two grand for you, two for me, and we get the illegal to fix it”.
One thing I know will be left out of work in Heaven - frustration, disappointment, politics, favoritism LOL

That’s going to be a very crowded broadcast booth I’m afraid, just like all the crowded Broadway stages and movie studios.
Heck, work is good for you. There'll probably be plenty
God created this complex world - WHY? would He make the next one boring???
Yes, because the thief on the cross was told “Verily, later on, after you get through ‘purgatory’, you will be with me in paradise”.
God said, "You don't stand a chance--I have all the best players."
Satan replied, "That's true--but I have all the umpires!"
I love baseball and woodworking, so I figure I’ll be making baseball bats!
When you are doing something you love to do, it’s not really work, even if it is hard. If it produces great results it is all the sweeter!
I know one thing about heaven.
I will be with the Lord and He will know me.
Works for me.
I have thought about it a lot but still do not have any idea what heaven is, or where it is, after all of the reading i am clueless.
WE just might have to WORK in Heaven. Huh?
