Marriage

 

DSC_0378Luke 20:34-36  Jesus replied, “the people of this age marry and are given in marriage. But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage., and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.

The glimpse of heaven we receive in these verses have always been difficult for me. I love my husband – a lot. I enjoy spending time with him and the intimacy we experience in our daily lives. He is my best friend. I do not want to loose my husband when we arrive in heaven. Last week he had emergency gallbladder surgery to remove his extremely infected gallbladder. He was in the hospital for three days on large doses of antibiotics. He is home now recovering, and feeling increasingly better every day! (Praise God)

As I studied these verses more in depth, I realized relationships in heaven will be so much more than the relationships we experience here on earth. We will be capable of loving on a new level, with the ability to experience satisfying intimate relationships with so many more people. I will not loose my husband , my best friend, in heaven. He will be with me experiencing the same joy and community right alongside me. I look forward to meeting you there as well to join my husband and I praising our Lord for eternity.
