Continuing on with answering the great questions I was asked:

Bobbi of Great Adventures II asked: "A question...Do you really think when we get to Heaven that we'll even ask any questions? "

This one really makes me think about something I've NEVER thought about before!!!

I truly have NO idea, but in reflecting on it I'd probably say "no", based on the scripture:

"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 1 Corinthians 13:12

The "then shall I know" might mean we truly will know everything and not have to ask anything. The other thing to think about, (and I must say I've never thought about this verse that deeply before!!!!) is does this mean we will only know as much about our wonderful God and Savior as we have learned and know here on earth. Boy, now THAT's something to think about!!!! If we truly believe this we'd spend a lot more time getting to know HIM better!!!!

This is a GREAT question!!!! Let's all think about this and the rest of you weigh in with your thoughts and let me know what you think.

Caviate: I am not a Bible scholar!!!! I just know I love my Lord and I have my opinions.

I love your answer. Thank you for honoring me by answering! I express my answer when I asked, but in case anyone else missed it and wonders what I think...I think we'll be in awe and won't even think about all those things we wanted to know before, or like Susan said, we'll have the answers when we get there.

I do believe that when we get to heaven all will be revealed and we will know and see as God sees. What a wonderful thought.

I have not typed up my book meme yet but I have written it out so I will do that this week. In the meantime due to being asked by quite a number of people I have put up another "chapter". Do come see as it is quite amazing.

Good answer to this...actually, this is something I've thought about before, but I agree with you. And I think what matters to us more here won't matter as much then when we're suddenly there with God!

diana said...

hmmm... i've never thought about this in any other way but that i'll have loads of questions. but it does make sense that we would automatically know the answers to our questions or that they won't matter any more in light of the awe that we will experience.

great food for thought.

Barb said...

What a wonderful, though-provoking question and one I have never heard asked before either.

I don't think so. When I read your Corinthian text it always makes me think we don't have a clue here on earth of what God is really like. I feel we will be blown away by the new all-knowing eternal life we have been given,.

Kathleen Marie said...

That is an interesting question. I think we will know all God wants us to know. Wow! A brain twister for sure! Hugs!

Great answers to god questions. I am so far behind on reading up on all my friends' activities! Lots going on around here. I love your family pictures - just wonderful.

Dawn said...

Yikes - I meant "good" questions - but maybe I should have just capitalized the G!

What an interesting thought. I always hear people say "I'll ask God when I get there..." But, you are right, we won't need to! And I guess at that point, why he invented mosquitos won't be so important anyway. ;-)

Great question! You answered it well - Jennifer

I do think that we will know the "answers". We won't have burning questions to ask anymore. Won't it just be glorious!

Ma Kettle said...

Susan...excellent forum, because it has been one for all of us to ponder and glean from you and eachother.

I read through the comments and realized that I again had read another devotional while visiting here!

Thank you again:)

kimkay said... know fully and be fully known. Can't wait for that day.

This just makes me think and reflect upon the song "I Can Only Imagine" by Mercy Me.

I believe that when we do get to meet our LORD face to face ALL will be revealed to us. I also think sometimes that GOD has a picture book so speak of our lives....and as we reminisce with HIM we will know the reasons why certain things happened. I know for me, it would be a good time to laugh with CHRIST things are understood. HE and I will surely be rolling with tears from laughter from all of my adventures....and I am only 38, and have been walking with HIM for 20 years.....I am sure there will be even more as time goes by. But PRAISE HIM, that as each one does go by I get to love HIM more and draw even closer to HIM.
