4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[a] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4 NIV)
The old workout mantra “No Pain, No Gain” is completely changed in heaven where there is total gain. Mourning, crying, pain and death no longer have a place. For any who have watched loved ones walk the path of sickness and death there is a keen sense of this statement.
Keeping our faith focused upon what is to come, while doing everything we can in this world to bear fruit: this is the Christian life.
