I just caught a few minutes of the opening ceremonies last night and always enjoy the part when all the nations have gathered. As always, the place goes nuts with excitement when the flame is lit. All barriers and policies seem to go out the window as people from all over the world cheer together with the Olympic spirit.
I could not help but think that this is somewhat a picture of what heaven is going to be like. There will be peoples from all nations and all the things that keep Christ followers apart will no longer matter (i.e. music style, language, dress etc...). There with all our flags waving, we will together erupt in joy and jubilation when we come face to face with the One True Light Jesus Christ.
I wonder if there will be fireworks in heaven like we've never seen before?
