Writer Calvin Miller wrote: I once led a man to Christ who loved the sunny country of common sense, but he could not put up with the mysteries of godliness. He kept shoving common sense at me, while I kept trying to show him that the mysteries held the meaning of faith. One day he said, "Pastor, you know this new eternal life I have -- well, I’ve been thinking about it. What are we going to do all day long for eternity?" "We’ll praise the Lord," I said. "Forever - for ten million years! --we’re going to stand around and praise the Lord?" "Well, yes," I said, although heaven was beginning to sound like cable television. "For millions and millions of years?" he said. "Couldn’t we just stop now and then and mess around a while?" I kidded him about his "dumb questions," but I have to admit similar questions of my own at times. How meager our understanding of praise -- and heaven! Calvin Miller.
