Is Heaven Enough?

In his book God Is the Gospel, John Piper essentially asks whether we are in love with God:

          The critical question for our generation – and for every generation – is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?

Francis Chan, Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

Heaven isn’t the reward for doing good. Your actions have nothing to do with it. It’s reuniting with the one you love. Coming home to the one who loved you beyond reason and sacrificed everything for you. Is that enough?
