CQOD: 02/13/07 -- Barclay: where heaven is
Christian Quotation of the DayFebruary 13, 2007
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.
-- John 14:3 (ESV)
For the Christian, heaven is where Jesus is. We do not need to speculate on what heaven will be like. It is enough to know that we will be for ever with Him. When we love anyone with our whole hearts, life begins when we are with that person; it is only in their company that we are really and truly alive. It is so with Christ. In this world our contact with Him is shadowy, for we can only see through a glass darkly. It is spasmodic, for we are poor creatures and cannot live always on the heights. But the best definition of it is to say that heaven is that state where we will always be with Jesus, and where nothing will separate us from Him any more.
... William Barclay (1907-1978), The Gospel of John  (Vol. 2)
