We are all supposed to put God first in our mortal lives. But it also will be the case in Heaven?
Charles Spurgeon, writer and preacher, had a unique perspective on this issue. He writes, “I expect to see and know all the saints, to recognize them, and rejoice with them, and that without the slightest prejudice to my being wholly absorbed in the sight of my Lord. Let me explain to you how this can be. When I went the other day into a friend’s drawing-room, I observed that on all sides there were mirrors. The whole of the walls were covered with glass, and everywhere I looked I kept seeing my friend. It was not necessary that I should fix my eyes upon him, for all the mirrors reflected him. Thus, brethren, it seems to me that every saint in heaven will be a mirror of Christ, and that as we look upon all the loved ones, gaz in ground upon them all, we shall see Christ in every one of them, so we shall still be seeing the Master in the servants, seeing the head in all the members. It is Iin them, and they in me. Is it not so? It will be all the Master. This is the sumtotal of heaven.” Spurgeon saw no problem in loving one’s mate forever, for itwould not be a conflict with loving one’s Lord supremely.
In heaven, after the Resurrection we will not be limited in love or limited by time or energy?
So we will be able to love all whom God loves radically, in our own way, because we will have been transformed into saints who love with the love of God and without the boundaries earth?
