Eternal Perspectives

If we take literally the earthly depictions of life on the New Earth, we can make a direct connection between our current lives and our future in Heaven. When I’m eating with people here, enjoying food and friendship, it’s a bridge to when I’ll be eating there, enjoying food and friendship at the banquet table God has prepared for us (Revelation 19:9). This isn’t making a blind leap into a shadowy afterlife; it’s just taking a few natural steps in the light Scripture has given us.
