Our obedience and service to God is love for God. You cannot love God without the option not to love God. There will be no poor to feed in heaven. Nor will their be the possibility to hate God through adultery in heaven. Jesus tells us we store up treasure in heaven through our alms to the poor on earth. It is through free willed obedience to the will of God on earth that one produces the eternal treasure of love for God in heaven.

NIV 1JO 5:3
This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome.NIV JOH 14:15
“If you love me, you will obey what I command.”
NAB JOH 15:22
“If I had not come to them and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; now, however, their sin cannot be excused. To hate me is to hate my Father. Had I not performed such works among them as no one has ever done before, they would not be guilty of sin; but as it is, they have seen, and they go on hating me and my Father.”
NAB EXO 20:5
“. . . you shall not bow down before them or worship them. For I, the LORD, your God, am a jealous God, inflicting punishment for their fathers’ wickedness on the children of those who hate me, down to the third and fourth generation; but bestowing mercy down to the thousandth generation, on the children of those who love me and keep my commandments.” NAB LUK 12:31
"Instead, seek his kingdom, and these other things will be given you besides. Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your belongings and give alms. Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be."Peace in Christ,
