Is Heaven boring?

No.  If Heaven is boring, God is boring.  And God is most certainly not boring.  Take a look around the planet and the universe and marvel at his creation – the people, the animals, oceans, mountains, flowers, DNA, cells, planets, stars, and so much more.  God created everything, including everything that is joyful, beautiful, good, interesting and exciting.  It is only by the entrance of sin into that world that some things became ugly. 

Still, think of how many movies, books, etc. portray Heaven as boring – just an endless, repetitive church service on fluffy clouds.  People have seen that for so long that some Christians don’t even look forward to Heaven.  For Christians, our citizenship is not of this place:

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

Consider what A W Tozer said:

The weakness of so many modern Christians is that they feel too much at home in the world. In their effort to achieve restful “adjustment” to unregenerate society they have lost their pilgrim character and become an essential part of the very moral order against which they are sent to protest. The world recognizes them and accepts them for what they are. And this is the saddest thing that can be said about them. They are not lonely, but neither are they saints.

How can having an “eternal perspective” help you not only get through this life, but to live more vibrantly?
