When I was a boy I discovered that if I would swing and lean back and then lean forward quickly on the descent, I would have a feeling of weightlessness. At the time I considered it a wonderful feeling of euphoria. I tried to show others how to experience the unusual feeling of sudden weightlessness.
I would not know for years that there were unspeakably greater pleasures that God had designed for me to experience later. One of those pleasures was the pleasure of marital intimacy. Wouldn’t it have been foolish for me to say that the pleasure of a little boy on the playground is all the pleasure I ever want or need to experience, when God designed other pleasures to wonderful to adequately describe? It would. And it would be equally foolish to doubt that there are pleasures forevermore that go far beyond even the wonderful pleasure of marital intimacy.
How could heaven be blissful, more wonderful than earth, and yet without marriage and marital relations?
The best marriages include trouble. On this fallen earth all human relationships are troubled. Not so in heaven. Even in the very best of marriages there is longing for things that are not and will never be. Not so in heaven. Even your relationship with your believing spouse is troubled by the effects of the fall. If I started to give examples you would all laugh. Some of you would cry. Those incompatibilities will be removed and replaced with heavenly love. There are pleasures for us greater than we have every experienced and greater than we can imagine.
At his right hand are pleasures forevermore. (Psalm 16)
