I found this devotion in the Baptist Bread devotional that I’d like to share with you. It was written by Guy Goodell the pastor of Bible Baptist Church in Hudson Falls, New York.

“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of Life.” Rev. 21:27

Have you ever wondered what it will be like in the eternal city of God. ” Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you–” John 14:1,2

The Bible gives only brief glimpses of our home that was prepared by Him.

1. ETERNAL FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM– “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” I John 3:2

2. ETERNAL REST WITH HIM–“And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.” Rev.14:13

4. A LIFE OF HOLINESS WITH HIM–“And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination. or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.” Rev. 21:27

6. A LIFE OF SERVICE TO HIM—“And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him.” Rev. 22:3

7. ETERNAL ABUNDANCE FROM HIM—“And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” Rev. 21:6

8. ETERNAL GLORY WITH HIM–  “When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.”  Colossians 3:4
