I thought about this the other day, then I forgot to write about it but I remember it again. How can I write something that I have not experienced ? Well God gave us this blessed hope. Have you ever based your happiness on something in the future then got unhappy when you obtained what you are aiming for. For example I dreamed of owning a car, I was happy at first then I found out that owning a car is also a responsibility, one has to take care of it, insure it etc.
Now back to the topic , everlasting life, what we know is, it is never ending, with no ending (sounds like I am repeating myself).Sure we will see our saved departed loved ones. But are we not forgetting anything ?
Here is what I thought, everlasting life without God , without Jesus is not everlasting life. If we are not loving Jesus now, we will not enjoy everlasting life.
God told Abraham in Genesis 15:1 that He is his reward, his exceeding great reward.Jesus promised mansions in heaven, streets of gold, precious stones, pearly gate(as written by apostle John ). I believe when we get to heaven through Jesus Christ we will not notice those for we will be in awe of God. But alas here on earth we get attach to material things, but wait a minute God knows we need those things now but He also said "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness , and all these things will be added unto you.But soon being with God is all that matters.
