I read of no secondary joys in Heaven. Nowhere do I read of God’s people being placed in the back settlements of Canaan. I do not read of second class citizens in Heaven. The dying thief, for example, had no good works by which to claim anything from God, yet he entered Heaven, was accepted and rewarded by God in exactly the same way as any other of God’s children are saved, through the merits of Christ.
Heaven, in all it’s fullness, is altogether the reward of grace. All the people of God are loved with the same love - perfectly. There are no degrees in God’s perfect love. We were all redeemed with the same precious blood, with the same price. We were all made the very righteousness of God in Christ and we are all the same children of God by the same spirit of adoption.
So why should there be degrees in Heaven? Can there be degrees in perfect glory? Certainly not. This is the promise given to those who believe, both for time and eternity, ‘All things are yours’ 1 Corinthians 3:21.
When the Lord Jesus presents us faultless and without blame before God, we shall all be perfect, having no spot of sin, and no good thing shall be with-held from us.
Yours in Christ
