A Beautiful Picture
From time to time we see pictures on social media that someone has taken of a beautiful rainbow or a picture of some breath taking scenery maybe from a recent vacation. Most of the time following these pictures the words that follow are “the picture doesn’t do it justice”. In other words, to get the full image of the picture, it would be best to see it in person.
In scripture we have a description of Heaven, which is sometimes described as a city, a country, a kingdom, a place of rest, a mansion, and a place that God created as in Genesis 1:1. In John 14:22 Christ said “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” Words cannot do Heaven justice because our human minds cannot comprehend the beauty. Pictures could never do it justice. All I know is that I want to see it with my own eyes someday so that I can truly say that heaven is surely worth it all.
