No one in Heaven envies anyone on earth

Who are the Luckiest People?

I was reading an article by Jon Bloom and he made this comment that just grabbed my attention.

“No one in heaven envies the rich of this world. No one covets the famous. No one praises the powerful. They have discovered what it means to “live deep and suck all the marrow out of life.” They have found that which is truly life: Jesus Christ.”

Isn’t it easy to get caught up in this mindset that we’re are missing out on something?

The rich and famous are the ones who are getting to experience so much and here we are barely getting by or living this boring normal life.

We act as if we’ve gotten a bad deal.

But we haven’t.

We are the Luckiest People

There will never be a day in heaven when any of us looks back and think and wish we could go back for just one day.

The glories of heaven will be so amazing that anything we thought held value on earth will seem like a worthless piece of garbage. Especially when we lay our eyes on Christ.

When we see Christ our hearts will beat out of our chests with joy and over abounding love because we have finally been reunited with the one who has truly loved before we were even born.

Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

We will be in the presence of life, love, and perfection. We will instantly know that all those things that for years tugged on our hearts like necessities were simply distractions from the truest treasure Jesus Christ.

There’s no one rich enough, famous enough, or powerful enough to surpass the Glory of God. Nothing and no one. And missing out will be the farthest thought from our mind. “He was worth it” will be our song.

Don’t waste another day thinking about what all you could be experiencing or what other’s are experiencing. Set your eyes on Christ. Ask the Holy Spirit and He will show you how to count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:8-10).

    1. Amen! I just replied to Lisa Beth about the imagery she gave and you give here as well. I picture someone trying to find someone or something in a forest but they can’t because their sight is limited. But if they could only see from a higher view they could see so much more – they would get the bigger picture. Or as you say a heavenly perspective.

  4. Benjamin, thank you for blessed thoughts for a new week, thoughts that take root now and carry us through into eternity with our Lord. We are “made to sit in heavenly places in Christ” now; not looking back but forward to our high calling in Him forever. Blessings for your week in His service.
