Life in Christ

“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, besides thee, what he hath prepared for him that waitheth for him.” (Isaiah 64:4)

For those of us who are in Christ (having invited Him into our hearts, asking for our sins to be forgiven) have a wonderful inheritance waiting for us.  The prophet Isaiah prophesied this hope for a glorious future—part of which is seen in the Scripture from Isaiah (shared above).  In the New Testament Paul, writes about how the gospel doesn't make sense to those who are perishing—it’s foolishness to them; however, to those who believe, it is life.

"For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." 1 Corinthians 1:18

"For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it 
pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."  
1 Cornithians 1:21

We can cling to this promise, as well as every promise in God’s Word.  God is true to His Word; He cannot lie.  Our worse days are but such a short time compared to an eternity with our Lord.  No matter what our economic or social status on earth, we have a wonderful inheritance awaiting us, provided we are in Christ.     

Where do you stand?  It takes spiritual eyes to see, spiritual ears to hear, and a spiritual mind to understand spiritual truths.  May the eyes of your heart be enlightened (see Eph. 1:18!  Who can you share the Good News with today?

Please join with me in prayer:

Dear Father, thank you for this glorious future you have prepared for those who believe and have Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  We eagerly await this future that is better by far than our present situation.  You are awesome, Father, we give you all praise! In Jesus’ holy name.  Amen.

Grace and Peace,
