No eye has seen – Bruce Collins
@Eastside community Church
What can truly describe God and Lord Jesus – nothing!
The amazing things God has prepared for those who love him … We can’t describe and explain. It’s just so Amazing
We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him— these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. (1 Corinthians 2:6-10 NIV)
The world is a desperate place. The world values temporary pleasures but forget the root of our problems.
God is the root of correcting what we experience currently.
We are currently a spec on the rope of eternity! So if we get wrapped up on the specs of this world we forget the promise of eternity. By living in God we live through a real Hope, a hope that we know is real, a hope that does get fulfilled because we know it WILL happen!
However we are being prepared for this, this eternity. However through this promise of eternal life, we must make the choice the choice to follow.
This HOPE is a present reality. The promise in action and is secure!
However the promise of heaven impacts our lives as we live it right now. The hope we have in Jesus impacts on our present way we living. How
1. God looks after us, Now. He cares about the smallest things about me right now.
2. Gods love. It’s relentless and steadfast. We miss the mark all the time as we live our lives as a spec, but God shows us grace for everything. There is consequences of our actions, yes, but there’s grace. You can come back to The Lord and ask his forgiveness.
3. Christian community is a picture of the future. If you willing to live in community.
Our present reality is linked to our eternal hope. Our promise of eternity makes our calling on earth crystal clear. However if we don’t believe in the awesomeness of eternity and what to come and it’s set in our heart, then the great commission is meaningless and heavens truth pointless.
Heaven is real. It’s not a secret. If you RSVP your in!
So do you live with this promise of eternity in your heart and life it out through our daily callings?!?
It’s about loving Jesus! Heaven is the restored relationship between Man and GOD!
If we believe e amazing promises of heaven then it must affect our current reality!
If my life’s work is based on the great commission, we can and will live full lives!!!
