2 Peter 3:13  Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

Living in a world that is so heavily laden with sin and corruption, makes it a little difficult to imagine what it would be like to live in a world without it and to live where righteousness dwelleth.

To live in a world where there is no sin is not very appealing to many people.  I often hear people joke about preferring to go to hell with the sinners because their idea of heaven is too peaceful and boring.  I say they should be careful what they wish for, and if they knew the Savior of the world, heaven could not possibly be boring in any way.  The joy of the Lord is unknown to them.  The peace which only He can instill escapes them nor do they know the warmth and comfort and strength and peace of true love.  

For when one experiences the joy of His love, there is nothing else to be desired more than this.  It is life sustaining more than physical nourishment for we do not live by bread alone.  We can exist on bread alone, but we are only truly alive by the nourishment that comes from His living word and knowing Jesus.

I patiently and longingly wait for His kingdom on earth with new heavens.  To worship Him all the day long will be Heaven on earth, and well worth the wait.
