More, Not Less

Sharing Options

“Jesus says that in the resurrection, we will not marry or be given in marriage (Lk. 20:34-36). At the same time do not conclude from this that your relationship with your spouse will somehow be less than what it is now. When you have ‘been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun,’ you will not run into your husband on the golden streets someplace and say, ‘Oh, hi. It’s you.’ Whatever God has in store for us, it will be glorious beyond all mortal reckoning — but if it is just like here, then the question of the Sadducees stands (Matt. 22:23-28)” (For a Glory and a Covering, p. 137).

This is so hopeful. I remember being a new Christian and newly married 14 years ago and learning that we would not be married in Heaven. I was so sad because I thought it would be as described there above, “oh hi…It’s you.” Grateful it will not be like that. :)

My only regret will be that I will never know what it is to have a sinless marriage with my wife, what it is to raise sinless kids but I am sure that heaven will pale all these regrets.
