How Will We Feel?

Q. Will there be class division in Heaven? I mean, people that have earned rewards (crowns) by doing God’s will on earth and living for him, and then people who get in by the skin of their teeth. Will they be treated different, do you think? Like say, people who just got in, without rewards, will they have lowly jobs, smaller mansions, have to wait years to talk to Jesus? Or do you think it’ll all be equal? Thanks! Love your website!

A. Specifics like this haven’t been revealed to us. The only thing we know for sure is that we’ll all be glad just to be there. I don’t think some will be pleased with themselves for the rewards they receive, while others will regret not having received more. We’ll all be perfectly content. After all, only those things we do at the Lord’s request and in His strength will count.

Pride, envy, superiority and inferiority and the like are all earthly emotions that will go away when we are transformed. The emotions we’ll have left are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control. These are the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

Try to imagine how Jesus would feel about things like this and remember what 1 John 3:2 says:

“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is” .
