Emmet asks, “Where Is Heaven?”
The Bible uses the word heaven in different ways. The word ‘heaven’ in the Bible can be used to simply talk about the sky above us: the place of the sun, moon, stars, and clouds. To think of the heavens as the sky prepares us to think of heaven in another way.
When we see the stars and moon in the night sky, it reminds us that God is even bigger than the universe. When we see the majesty of a beautiful sunset, it reminds us that God is more majestic still.
This prepares us for the most common way the Bible uses the word heaven. Heaven is the invisible place where God’s uncontainable presence lives.
The Bible tells us that one day God’s presence will permeate every inch of this planet. It will drive away all sin and pain.
In Revelation chapter 21:2, it says:
“And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.’” (Revelation 21:2–3, ESV)
Let’s pray: We thank you, God, that you want to live with us forever. You sent your Son to bring heaven down to earth, first in the hearts of your people and fuller still in the New Heaven and New Earth. Help us even now to live in the presence of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, so that we can experience heaven in our lives even now. It’s in His name that we pray. Amen.
