The Shadowlands and the Glory to Come
As Christians, we look forward to our future home. The Bible is clear. There will be a resurrection day. We will inherit a new heaven and a new earth. That's God's promise to His people. That's something that we as Christians can all look forward to. There is going to be a judgment day, but we look beyond that judgement day to an eternal kingdom. In Matthew 25:34, it says in describing what will happen to the people of God at the last judgment - "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.'" As Christians, we look forward to that eternal kingdom.
