Not only will it be like this, it must be like this.
Will it be like that on Judgment Day, I wonder. At the end of all things, will capital-G God be like some sort of capital-I Internet, connecting us back to all the people we’ve had dealings with, connecting us back with all the things we have done? Some of those encounters, I know, we’d rather not have. But will it be that when we finally meet with the people we have not done right by, and we start to stammer out our regrets, that their eyes will sparkle, and clear laughter will fill the air? That they will say to us, “But it wasn’t like that at all?” That we will discover that God has already changed everything into joy?
