Are we going to have material things in heaven?

There is no indication in the Bible that we will take anything materially with us in heaven.   It's true.  We CAN'T take it with us.

However, it's likely that we will have the capacity to work and build and use our talents for the glory of God and to bless others in heaven.   That work could produce material things.  For example, an artist could make a painting and give it someone else.   Someone could make bread and share it with others.

Since our final resurrected resting place is a physical location with rocks, woods, trees and food, it’s likely we could make material things out of those resources, but our attitude towards materialism will be completely different than it is today.  We may have things, but we won’t need things.
