Have you ever just stopped and wondered what it was like in the Garden of Eden? I have and it’s kind of hard to imagine it. A perfect world with no sin. Our bodies and brains fully developed and fully functional. We are strong and can think lightening quick. Speaking of lightning; no thunderstorms, hurricanes, earthquakes, or tornadoes. No diseases. No sickness. No hatred. No fear. No anger. No sadness. And on I can go.
As great as the Garden of Eden was, I think heaven will be even better. It will be better because we personally experienced this fallen world and now we can personally experience a perfect world for eternity. We can look back and say, “I overcame evil with the help of Jesus.” Adam and Eve could never say that as they were given a perfect world to start with.
I try to imagine paradise. The best place here on earth. But, I can only imagine for so long until I start thinking of giant spiders, sunburns, bad weather, and anything else that can go wrong.
I can imagine heaven will be great. I’ll have a house of my own. My own vineyards. Walk on gold. Live freely and happily. Be able to see beautiful scenery. Converse with people who lived in all ages. But that is as far as my mind can take it. I can’t fully imagine it because I haven’t been able to fully experience anything like it.
I know heaven will be great. I know I will enjoy it fully. And, I know you will too. Take a few minutes to describe what you think paradise will be like and what you expect there.
