Rev. 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; …


Can you imagine an existence where love is the constant state of affairs?

Where every interaction is done with other people’s greatest good in mind? A

place where there is no yelling, no lying, stealing, hurting, destruction, deception,

cheating, no need for crying? Instead, there is kindness, care, concern,

and utmost respect? Well, that is heaven—where the moral law of love rules.

But love does not feel like a law; it is not drudgery:


But in heaven, service is not rendered in the spirit of legality. When Satan

rebelled against the law of Jehovah, the thought that there was a law came

to the angels almost as an awakening to something un-thought of. In their

ministry the angels are not as servants, but as sons. There is perfect unity

between them and their Creator. Obedience is to them no drudgery. Love for

God makes their service a joy. So in every soul wherein Christ, the hope of

glory, dwells, His words are re-echoed, “I delight to do Thy will, O My God:

yea, Thy law is within My heart.” Psalm 40:8 {MB 109.2, emphasis added}.


Being in a state of love means being filled with joy, and when we love

someone it is a pleasure to be with them. Love evokes all sorts of positive

and wonderful thoughts and feelings, and if used as a guideline for our

lives, it is not cumbersome to follow. Love’s greatest joy is to make another

happy. If absolutely everyone was filled with God’s love, the world

would be a peaceful place because His love, which is unconditional,

God on Trial impartial, and freedom giving, is the perfect mechanism for social interaction.

Everyone is cared for, and no one left out.
