Q: Will we just float around on a cloud when we get to heaven, and be kind of like ghosts or something? That doesn't sound very exciting to me, to be honest. -- D. McF.
A: No, that image you see in cartoons of someone floating around on a cloud and strumming a harp simply isn't true. Nor is it true that we'll be purely spiritual creatures in heaven with no physical substance, somewhat like ghosts.
Second, the Bible tells us that we'll have work to do in heaven, because we'll be serving God and doing His will. Unlike here, however, we won't become weary, nor will we become ill or injured. We won't be bored in heaven! The Bible says, "No longer will there be any curse.... And his servants will serve him" (Revelation 22:3).
The real question, however, is this: Are you certain that you will be going there? Sin cuts us off from God,-- both now and in eternity. But Christ died to take away our sins. Make sure of your salvation by putting your faith and trust in Christ and committing your life to Him without delay.
