1 Corinthians 2:1-13

What a wonderful message / vision in today's reading. Paul's description of heaven is inspiring. It is very helpful to me to remember this vision as I carry on with this life. Of course I am referring to verse 9 where Paul states, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"

I started out by saying what a wonderful and lovely vision Paul lays out for us about heaven. But, of course, it is unimaginable. The glory of heaven cannot be envisioned by the human brain. It is beyond our ability to comprehend. It will have a beauty and peace that is beyond our understanding. Who wouldn't want to go to a place like that?

This knowledge about heaven that God has shared with us is the carrot at the end of the stick. It is meant to inspire us. This knowledge should help us press on in this life, to endure hardship and to resist temptation.

As I have told many of you before, if any of us truly belief that heaven is such a place, what wouldn't any of us do, what price wouldn't any of us pay, to obtain all eternity in such a place? Fortunately all we have to do is accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. If we honestly and completely do this, not only will we be saved, but our life will be changed forever.

Wishing you the best in your walk with Christ,
