Where will followers of Christ live in heaven? In John 14:2-3, Jesus said:
In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
Now I’m not sure exactly what a room in our Father’s house will be like. One translation referred to it as a mansion. But I do know these things:
- Jesus could make something magnificent in an instant, and He has had a couple thousand years to prepare rooms for believers. So I think they will be pretty sweet.
- It will be greater than anything we could imagine on this planet, so that has to be good. The very best of earth is a glimpse of Heaven and the very worst of earth is a glimpse of Hell.
- Jesus always keeps his promises, so we can rely on this 100%.
I’m not sure about the sleep part, other than whatever the sleep situation is we’ll understand it and be pleased with it. I know my current understanding and desire for sleep make me hope for some regular nap times. Any ideas?
