I have been wondering if we will recognize loved ones in heaven. I can’t seen to find any scriptures supporting this concept but have heard it preached.
1 Cor. 13:12 says,”For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
To know as we’re fully known means we will know everything and everyone, just as the Lord knows everything and each of us. That includes not only our loved ones, but also all the famous Biblical notables whose books we’ve read and whose exploits we’ve admired, and everyone else in Heaven.
