Will We Know One Another in Heaven?

Thank you for your question.  The Bible is not definitive about what our
relationships with others will be like in heaven.  The best passage that we
have on this is probably Matthew 22:23-33 where Christ is answering a
question from the Pharisees concerning the afterlife for a woman who had
multiple husbands on earth.  In verse 30, Jesus says, "For in the
resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like
angels in heaven."  This implies that people in heaven will know each other,
but they won't have the same relationships, such as marriage.

I believe that our existence in heaven will be overpowered by God's glory
(Revelation 4:9-11).  We will be so awe-struck by being in the very presence
of God, that we will somehow not even be too concerned with others.

Love in Christ,
