Will there be Olympics in heaven? Put that in the file with, “Will I have Chipotle burritos for dinner every night in heaven?” & “Will my fridge be stocked with I.B.C. Root Beer” in my mansion in heaven?” with questions that really have no real significance in the grand scheme of things.
However, in the spirit of the Olympics, will there be the Games in heaven? Can’t say for sure. But I can say this, according to 2 Corinthians 5:10, all of us will appear in front of the real judges. Not the judges that give out 9.0’s in diving for 9.025 in execution in gymnastics…I’m talking about the ultimate judge, Jesus Christ.
Here’s the point, what award will you get when you reach that platform. On display, in front of everyone that ever lived, will you have nothing to show for the years that God gave you on this earth? Or will you be rewarded for a live well-lived? Hopefully, God will tell you “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” and present you with your medal…in this case, more like a crown. Truthfully, it doesn’t matter the substance. What matters is we will get to place that reward at the feet of Jesus.
