Will there be work to do in heaven?

Be assured that we are not going to sit on a heavenly couch being lazy. What is God going to say to us when we get to heaven? Will He say, ”Well done, good and faithful servant; you can have the rest of eternity off.” No, what He will say is “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.”

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city and his servants will serve him.

Revelation 21:3

God has a great plan for each one of us to be wonderfully, happily, excitedly employed – serving the Lord in heaven. And we will be serving in the fullest expression of the capacity God has given us and using the giftedness He has placed within us.

What we won’t experience are the difficulties, pressures, stresses and heartaches that accompany work down here. We cannot possibly comprehend all of the glorious work with which we’ll be occupied throughout eternity; but we know that our service will result in deep joy and fulfillment.
