How could I be happy in heaven, knowing that some of my loved ones may not be there with me?


Many people have wondered how those in heaven could ever be truly happy, especially with the knowledge that unsaved loved ones were in hell. We do not know the full answer, but we do know what the Bible says concerning God’s people: “He [God] will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4).

We can be sure that with the presence of the Lord, the fellowship of believers, and the wonders of eternity, there will be no sorrow in heaven.

We also know that God is perfectly just, and those who are in heaven will have every confidence that whatever has happened at the final judgment has been totally just and right. The terrible possibility that our loved ones might miss heaven should motivate us to earnestly pray and lovingly witness to them while there is still time in this life for them to experience salvation.
