The Perfect Utopia

// In my English class, we are in the Utopian/Dystopian Unit. A Utopia is an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. A Dystopia is the complete opposite of this, it is a place that is undesirable and even frightening. One of our assignments was to write a three page paper, creating our own perfect Utopia and what we believe it would look like. I had to think about this for a while, the only perfect Utopia that I could come up with is when Earth and Heaven are brought together again. So that is what I decided to write about, Heaven on Earth. I was so pumped about this paper that I wanted to share it with you all, and here it is! //
What is my perfect Utopia? Well it would be just that, perfect. It would not be anything extravagant or extreme, no crazy scientific experiments to make the “ideal human.” It would be simple, and would be exactly what this world was like in the very beginning: without flaw, and without sin. So this really is not MY Utopia, but rather God’s. I know that if I were to make my own Utopia, it would ultimately fail because it would become corrupt just as every other Utopia has. I know this is just for kicks and giggles, and that none of this will actually happen, but my mind just does not work this way, not for this at least. I would like to show you, or at least describe, with the best of my ability, what a perfect world looks like.
When God first created the world, everything was perfect. I can not even begin to imagine how amazing and beautiful it was before sin had come into the world and destroyed everything. God designed everything to be beautiful and perfect, and we ended up ruining his perfect world because we were ignorant enough to believe that our way was right. We attempt to live life the way that we see fit, instead of God’s way. Following our own rules, instead of his. This is sin, and this is what makes everything ugly. Yes, this world is still extremely beautiful, but it is a broken world. I long for the day when everything will be restored to its former beauty. Every single inch of this universe (which by the way is INFINITE) will be laced and covered with God and his Holiness. Not that it is not already like that right now, people will just be fully aware of his perfection, and they will be in awe of it. Everyone will be filled with unceasing joy and they will be amazed at his wonder, bringing him endless praises. Thinking about this gives me shivers, this is what a perfect world will look like.
Not only will we be in constant worship because we are so in awe of his glory and majesty, everyone will be filled with love. In our world right now, people are stuck in the mindset that love is something that you feel. But it is not, love is a verb. “1 Corinthians 13:4-7  Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” In this Utopia, people will be kind to one another, they will be patient. Everyone will be humble and gentle, and ultimately, they will be perfect, because this is a perfect and flawless Utopia. There will be no crude language, no fighting, no murdering, and no stealing. If you are understanding the gist of it, there will be nothing in this perfect Utopia that is wrong, evil and sinful in THIS world right now.
Allow me to continue to paint this picture for you, this Utopia will be Heaven on Earth, literally. In the end, when all of the sin is destroyed, Heaven and Earth will come together as it was in the very beginning. Clothing will not be our typical clothing, it will be art and beauty. Food will be a constant feast and celebration. This will be us living out our eternity in perfect harmony with creation, animals, man, and our glorious King. There will be no pain or suffering, everything is perfect. Do not even attempt to try to comprehend this, because all of this is so beyond us right now, it is simply incomprehensible. Especially do not think that this is just a silly idea, because it is far from that. This is reality, and this is what is going to be happening in the end. My heart yearns for this perfect world, why would you not want to be a part of something as amazing and beautiful as this?    

// If you can't tell, I'm obviously extremely passionate about this subject. I was so thrilled to write about this that I was up past midnight last night trying to finish it all. I can not wait until we are able to be in the presence of God, especially when it is in the new Heaven and Earth. It will be absolutely magnificent! :) //
