What prevents us from being rightly related to God? It is sin! And since heaven promises a right relationship with God, what’s missing in heaven? You got it—Sin. Heaven will be sin-free. Both death and sin will be things of the past.
Can you imagine a world minus sin? Have you done anything recently because of sin? At the very least, you’ve complained. You’ve worried…you’ve grumbled…hoarded when you should have shared…second-guessed and covered up. But you won’t do that in heaven. Sin has sired a thousand heartaches and broken a million promises. Your addiction can be traced back to sin. Your mistrust can be traced back to sin. Bigotry, robbery, adultery—all because of sin.
But in heaven, all of this will end. So. . .can you imagine a world without sin? If so, you can imagine heaven!
