D EAR BILLY GRAHAM: Will we just float around on a cloud when we get to heaven, and be kind of like ghosts or something? D.M.

DEAR D.M.: No, that image you see in cartoons of someone floating around on a cloud and strumming a harp simply isnt true. Nor is it true that well be purely spiritual creatures in heaven with no physical substance, somewhat like ghosts.
The Bible doesnt answer all our questions about heaven and what it will be like, but it does tell us two important truths (among others). First, it tells us that we will be given new bodies in heaven bodies that will be similar to our bodies right now, but without the limitations and diseases that currently plague us. In fact, the Bible says our new bodies will be like the resurrected body of Jesus. We can barely imagine this but its true!
Second, the Bible tells us that well have work to do in heaven because well be serving God and doing his will. Unlike here, however, we wont become weary, nor will we become ill or injured. We wont be bored in heaven!
Make sure of your salvation by putting your faith and trust in Christ and committing your life to him without delay.
