I Can Only Imagine

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will no longer exist; grief, crying, and pain will exist no longer, because the previous things have passed away. Revelation 21:4 HCSB

The group MercyMe has a popular song called “I Can Only Imagine”. It expresses some of the feelings and thoughts we may have when we stand in the presence of Jesus and God in heaven. The lyrics are as follows:

I can only imagine what it will be like
When I walk by your side,
I can only imagine what my eyes will see
When your face is before me,
I can only imagine.

Surrounded by your glory,
What will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you Jesus
Or in awe of you be still?
Will I stand in your presence
Or to my knees will I fall?

Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine,
I can only imagine.

It is hard to imagine a world where there is no more pain, suffering, and death. Every tear will be wiped away. The world will be a perfect place. No more road rage, no more killings, no more sickness, no more traffic jams, no more late fees, no more bug bites, no more getting older, and no more people taking advantage of others. The list could be endless of the many hardships that will no longer exist. There will be endless happiness and joy as we praise and serve the Lord for eternity. God is preparing a wonderful mansion for us in heaven. I can only imagine what it will be like. What a glorious day that will be!

Challenge: Thank God for giving you the opportunity to have your sins forgiven because of what Jesus has done on the cross and having the promise of eternal life in a perfect place. Listen to the song “I Can Only Imagine” on Youtube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRPGRdbGHSs
