Question
Pastor Abrams
I am a 48 yr old conservative southern baptist and would like to know if you believe that we will be able to recognize each other in heaven? iow, I will know my children, parents by name etc.
Thanks in advance for your response.

Answer
Hi Dawn,
    Yes, you will know your family who are in heaven.   "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." (1 Corinthians 13:12)
     In other words, there are a lot of things we do not know about heaven(see through a glass darkly, but one thing you will know....you will be known in heaven as you are on earth.
In heaven we will know all things because we will see them "face to face."
    Hope this helps.  God bless you as you serve our Savior.
